Microsoft Visual C++ gives a robust and versatile improvement setting for creating Microsoft Windows-based and Microsoft.NET-based applications.
The Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package installs run-time components of Visual C++ libraries. These components are required to run C++ applications which can be developed using Visual Studio 2022 and hyperlink dynamically to libraries.
You can use this bundle to run such applications on a computer even when it doesn’t have Visual Studio 2022 installed. These packages install run-time components of those libraries: C Runtime (CRT), Standard C++, MFC, C++ AMP, and OpenMP.
Microsoft Visual C++ (also called MSVC) is a business built-in growth setting (IDE). This product is engineered by Microsoft for the C, C++, and C++/CLI programming languages. It has tools and libraries that allow you to create Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, native Windows desktops, and server applications. These tools additionally let you create cross-platform libraries and apps that run on Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS, in addition to managed apps and libraries that use the Microsoft .NET Framework.
You can use Microsoft Visual C++ to put in writing something from easy console apps to essentially the most sophisticated and complicated apps for the Windows desktop. From device drivers and operating system components to cross-platform games for mobile devices. And from the smallest IoT devices to multi-server high-performance computing within the Azure cloud.
Microsoft Visual C++ has features similar to syntax highlighting, IntelliSense (a coding autocompletion feature), and advanced debugging performance. For example, it permits remote debugging using a separate computer and permits debugging by stepping via code a line at a time. The “edit and continue” performance permits altering the source code and rebuilding the software throughout software debugging. Without restarting the debugged software.
The compile and build system feature, precompiled header files, “minimal rebuild” performance, and incremental hyperlink: features considerably shorten the turn-around time to edit, compile, and hyperlink the software, particularly for big software tasks.

Note Microsoft Visual C++ 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022 all share the same redistributable files.
For example, installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2022 redistributable will affect programs built with Visual C++ 2015, 2017, and 2019 additionally. However, installing the Visual C++ 2015 redistributable won’t replace the newer versions of the files installed by the Visual C++ 2017, 2019, and 2022 redistributables.
This is completely different from all earlier Microsoft Visual C++ versions, as they each had their very own distinct runtime files, not shared with other versions.
