Microsoft Visual Studio Professional icon An advanced and feature-rich integrated development environment that comes with all the tools you need to create innovative applications

Microsoft Visual Studio is one of the most complex integrated development environments (IDE) that can be used to build projects involving software solutions, console apps, and graphical user interfaces.

During installation, users are offered the possibility to choose the additional components they want to setup, depending on the task they want to achieve: Office, SharePoint or Web developer tools, Silverlight development kits or Microsoft Foundation Classes for C++. Due to the large amount of files and data that need to be configured, it takes several minutes until installation completes (depending on the performance of the host PC).

This IDE supports several programming languages frequently used by developers and webmasters: C/C++, VB.NET, C#, and F#, whereas downloading and installing extra utilities can bring support for Python and Ruby. Users can also develop JavaScript, CSS, XML/XSLT or HTML/XHTML projects within Visual Studio.

Not only can developers start their apps from scratch, but they can also modify their existing source code or look for syntax errors. Bugs can be fixed due to the built-in debugger that can be used both as a source-level and as a machine-level one, meant to support managed code and native one developed in any supported programming language.

Due to the complexity of Visual Studio, the type of projects that can be created is equally varied, so specialized tools are provided: web and class designers, creator of forms for GUI apps and a database schema builder.

Although it runs on Windows OS, Microsoft Visual Studio does not restrict its users when it comes to the platform they can develop on: Windows Mobile, Windows CE, Silverlight, .NET Framework or .NET Compact Framework.

In other words, when developers want to create a specific type of interface or app, they can find the proper tools within Visual Studio to ensure their project is bug-free and runs smoothly.
