    Microsoft used to provide Windows SDK separately, but it doesn't do that anymore. The only (official) way to get the Visual C++ compiler is to install Visual Studio. The Community edition is free.

    If I'm not mistaken, copying files and folders is not enough. You also need to set some registry keys. I don't recommend doing all this manually.

    Really??! Wow!

    This is pretty inconsiderate (to phrase it mildly) of them. Visual Studio (even the community edition) is some GBs and installs all sorts of unneeded things along ... and all this for a batch file with variables and a compiler + linker all amounting to a few MBs ... sad ...

    Ooh, actually... Microsoft recently announced that they will soon provide standalone C++ tools again: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/vcblog/2015/11/02/announcing-visual-c-build-tools-2015-standalone-c-tools-for-build-environments/ I just found out today after some searching.

    It's not ready yet, but this is a step in the right direction.



  • wow seems these news you revealed JKSH, are not just promising are reality


    Update 12/1/2015: Link above was fixed to point to the latest Update 1 release that contains the Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 RTM compilers and libraries.

    The Update 1 installer will install the following components:
    Visual C++ Compilers (targeting x86, X64 and ARM)
    Visual C++ headers & libraries (CRT & STL)
    Visual C++ build scripts (targeting Windows desktop)
    Microsoft Build Tools 2015 (MSBuild)
    Windows SDK 8.1 (optional, on by default)
    Windows SDK 10 (optional, off by default)
    C++ Build tools specific command prompts


    i wonder if someone have use it yet ?



  • There's no need to install Visual Studio to get MSVC. Microsoft now provides a package called Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools 2015 that contains only the tool chain, without the IDE or other language support. It can be downloaded from the official download page from the section "Tools for Visual Studio 2015 - > Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools 2015".
