Visual Studio 2005 is a very powerful development application for C++, C#, and J# developers. You can easily create a data-focused Client application with this very simple and professional development application. This application can also be used for developing Web pages as well as Web Services. You can also download Visual Studio 2008.
May 18, 2006 Update: The Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 has been replaced with Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition, which is also free. This page states, "Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition also contains an enhanced version of the C/C++ optimizing compiler for the fastest executables." This makes Visual C++ 2003 Standard and Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 obsolete, except that Visual C++ 2005 Express does not include ATL or MFC. Also, since it not desirable to upgrade Visual Studio during mid-project, you may still want the Visual C++ Toolkit 2003. Thus, we have it available for download off Uploading.com:
Visual Studio is Microsoft's developer suite featuring Visual Basic, Visual C++, Visual C# and Visual Web Developer. Install files of the old versions Visual Studio 2008 and 2005 were available on the Digital River download servers until February 2015. The up to date version "Visual Studio 2017" however is being offered as a free "Community" edition.
For personal and commercial use, Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition comes as a free download. This free edition should be more than sufficient in most cases. Should you need further functionality, you could consider ordering Visual Studio 2017 Professional or a standard or professional edition of one of the old versions from an online shop such as eBay and Amazon: 2b1af7f3a8
