In addition to providing state-of-the-art tools for efficiently developing and deploying applications in most major programming languages (C++, C#, JavaScript, ASP.NET, Python...), it includes over one hundred productivity enhancements that will enable you to write code faster with fewer bugs.

A variety of editions are available, each targeting specific audiences and integrating with Microsoft developer products:

  • Community - Free, fully-featured IDE for students, open-source and individual developers
  • Professional - Professional developer tools, services, and subscription benefits for small teams
  • Enterprise - End-to-end solution to meet demanding quality and scale needs of teams of all sizes

Due to the discontinuation of support for .NET Framework 4.0 - 4.5.1, Visual Studio 2022 no longer includes .NET Framework components for those versions. Apps targeting .NET Framework 4.0 through .NET Framework 4.5.1 cannot be built using Visual Studio 2022 and later versions. You can continue to build these apps using Visual Studio 2019 or an earlier version.
