Microsoft Visual C++

What is Microsoft visual C++ ?

Microsoft Visual C++ is a integrated development environment (IDE) used to create Windows applications in the C, C++, and C++/CLI programming languages.

It was originally a standalone product, but is now included as part of Microsoft Visual Studio. It offers developers a single application in which they can write, edit, test, and debug their code.

The programming environment includes access to a lot of shared code libraries, which let developers use already-developed code for specific procedures instead of having to write their own from scratch. That shared code takes the form of dynamic link libraries, a term most Windows users have come across at some point or other.

Software development plataform.NET

.NET is both a business strategy from Microsoft and its collection of programming support for what are known as Web services, the ability to use the Web rather than your own computer for various services.

The .NET platform includes servers:

  • Building-block services, such as Web-based data storage
  • Device software
  • Includes passport, Microsoft’s fill-in-the-form-only-once identity verification service.

The .NET platform was designed to provide:

  • The ability to make the entire range of computing devices work together and to have user information automatically updated and synchronized on all of them.
  • Increased interactive capability for Web sites, enabled by greater use of XML rather than HTML.
  • The ability to integrate various communications media, such as e-mail, faxes, and telephones.
