Hi, so i found out hacking the visual studio 2017 to install offline would be illegal.
My friend noted me there are also free compilers ( non microsoft ), something like Codeblocks, with a MingW ? compiler.
Normally i would use only microsoft compilers to build windows applications, that sounds logical.
Now i like to install some other compiler, only i am worryd about the performance.
Performance is the key to success for me, the compiler plays a huge role in this.
So how bad are those free compilers compared to the real microsoft ones ?
Anyone using another compiler then visual studio ?
What compiler can you suggest ?, it has to be for offline installation and running.
I dont understand why microsoft makes you build aplications only online ?, where is the logic behind that ?, i dont want to leak any codes.
Is there stand alone compiler from microsoft without the edittor ?, some sort of plugin for edittors to build applications ?
Just like you plug in a mingw compiler into codeblocks or something?, then i would like to add microsoft to codeblocks.
thanks in advance
