I just started with a clean install.  Could someone recommend a download link for me to develop Visual Studio C++ (stable) with.  I don't know if I'll be programming in other languages, it's possible I guess.  I want to use GitHub for projects with others.  I am using Windows 10.  I was using Visual Studio 2015 something and it was free...

Thank you,

Josheir

I added the extension for GitHub and had some success, but I can't seem to get property pages or any build buttons to work, they are all grayed out.

Can anyone help me?

Sincerely,

Josheir

VS2017 has a mode where the solution explorer browses folders before you've opened a solution - Perhaps this is what you're seeing?

Make sure you actually open a .sln file.

The IDE now is more functioning.

There is a visual studio installer page to visual studio.  I modified the first 5 optional and checked options.  It completed with warnings so I am concerned.  There is a repair feature.  I don't know what the warnings were about.  There are also 11 other available options.  Some that look interesting are:

C++/CLI support

standard library modules   (I'm thinking I need this for containers, etc?)

three windows 10 sdks

a 2015.3 v140 toolset

incredibuild  (maybe for editing smart completion?)

 

What is suggested, should I install the other optional eleven options?

The other options are:

windows 8.1 sdk

windows xp support

mfc and atl

clang/cli

 

Thank you,

Josheir
