We are interested in common customer workload requirements and scenarios and are exploring options to simplify deployment of build environments. Perhaps someday we may publish one or more container images. This is why the documentation exists now: to aide our customers and partners to tailor a container image to fit their needs. In Visual Studio 2017 Version 15.7 we made significant improvements to the Build Tools SKU to increase the number of workloads it supports since running the Visual Studio IDE (or even just using its build toolchain) in a container is not supported. This also greatly increased the size for a full install from previous releases when installing into a container was not officially supported but mostly worked.
BAZEL_VC_FULL_VERSION (Optional) Only for Visual Studio 2017 and 2019, the full versionnumber of your Visual C++ Build Tools. You can choose the exact Visual C++ Build Toolsversion via BAZEL_VC_FULL_VERSION if more than one version are installed, otherwise Bazelwill choose the latest version.
The Windows SDK contains header files and libraries you need when buildingWindows applications, including Bazel itself. By default, the latest Windows SDK installed willbe used. You also can specify Windows SDK version by setting BAZEL_WINSDK_FULL_VERSION. Youcan use a full Windows 10 SDK number such as 10.0.10240.0, or specify 8.1 to use the Windows 8.1SDK (only one version of Windows 8.1 SDK is available). Please make sure you have the specifiedWindows SDK installed.
Requirement: This is supported with VC 2017 and 2019. The standalone VC 2015 Build Tools doesn'tsupport selecting Windows SDK, you'll need the full Visual Studio 2015 installation, otherwiseBAZEL_WINSDK_FULL_VERSION will be ignored.
Today, Microsoft has released Visual Studio 2017 and it arrives with several new features as well as a two-day long webinar highlighting all the updates; you can learn more here. But, not all versions of Windows 10 are supported with this release.
By default version 2.1.0 of the PowerShell AzureRM version is being used on the Visual Studio 2017 on Windows Server 2016 (Hosted VS2017) Agent. But more AzureRM PowerShell versions are available, but not by default accessible via the PSModulePath environment variable.
So I tried -downloads/ MS page with link to older version. This page requires me to log in into my account (I tried my two accounts), on one, I got nothing ("you have no benefits"), using my other account I got the links, but only two Professional version of VS 2017.
Reliably, like clockwork, Microsoft churns out a new version of its IDE behemoth. March 7th, 2017 was one of those occasions, as Microsoft released Visual Studio 2017. Even with the regular cadence of incremental updates to Visual Studio, the big version jumps always offer plenty of new features. This new version is no exception.
What are the main features? Is there one big theme? Well, yes and no. Visual Studio is a very big and very mature product. Some features have been around for a long time, and others, such as the editor and the compiler infrastructure, have received a massive overhaul in recent versions. This time around, Microsoft is leveraging these new features and pushing them to the max. At the same time, Microsoft is now looking at the new development landscape and they're making sure that their development tools support all the latest scenarios. It's fair to say that the focus of Visual Studio 2017 is on performance, productivity, and supporting the latest development scenarios, such as cloud and mobile development. That's quite an ambitious goal.
For instance, many Web developers like using lightweight tools for specific tasks, and they want to be able to do so on any platform (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.). Visual Studio doesn't lay claim to that scenario, but Microsoft supports it with its new (and very popular) Visual Studio Code tool (download for free from www.visualstudio.com). Visual Studio Code lacks many features that a full IDE has, but on the other hand, Visual Studio Code is a really good editor. And that's what it aims to be: a tool for people who like to edit text-based files and do so very efficiently.
Xamarin is clearly one of the biggest additions to Visual Studio 2017. Since Microsoft acquired Xamarin, they've been busy integrating the Xamarin features right into Visual Studio, and in the 2017 version, this really shows (Figure 19). There are now numerous standard project templates for various mobile flavors (as well as cross-platform options). You may be surprised by the variety. Not only can you create iPhone and Android apps, but there are many variations on the theme, such as Android Wear apps (Android Watches) as well as Apple Watch apps. You can even create applications for Apple's tvOS (Apple TV apps). Figure 18 provides a glimpse of the available options.
Best of all, there is very little friction when moving to Visual Studio 2017. Most types of projects can be opened in 2017 without eliminating the ability to open them in older versions of Visual Studio. Thus, it's hard to think of a reason to stay with older versions of the tool. I recommend that you install it today!
Git is a distributed version-control system that has recently become very popular and can be seen as the de facto standard for version control. There are a number of different implementations of Git, many of them on Linux. Many different development tools can act as Git clients. There also are many dedicated Git clients, some with graphical user interfaces. Git purists are likely to use a Command Line Interface (CLI).Microsoft supports Git in a variety of ways. Visual Studio has had Git features for a while (and Visual Studio 2017 improves the feature set), allowing Visual Studio developers to directly connect to any server supporting the Git standard.Microsoft also supports the Git standard as part of Team Foundation Server (TFS). Projects managed in TFS can choose whether they want to use the TFS protocol for source control, or whether they want to use Git.The 800-lb-gorilla of the Git world is Github.com. It's a service entirely built around Git, with version control at its center and other services around it. It's become the default go-to service for many Open Source project, including Microsoft's.
The creation of HTML5-based HTML apps is clearly very important. There are many different approaches, with technologies such as Google's Angular 2, or Facebook's React being currently popular among many others. Many of these applications use approaches that didn't previously fit well into the world of Visual Studio. There are usually many different file types (with new ones seemingly being invented daily) in any project these days. Most of the HTML5 apps don't have a project definition file and instead just dump all files associated with the project into a folder.Visual Studio 2017 is now a great IDE for developing such applications. Support for opening entire folders rather than project files is important. Support for many different file types as first-class citizens is important as well. Even some of Microsoft's own technologies, such as TypeScript, have improved support in Visual Studio 2017.Of course, the full version of the Visual Studio IDE isn't the only tool useful in such projects. Visual Studio Code is another piece of the puzzle. There are also third-party tools that are very much worth investigating, and nowadays, you need to consider tools for all development platforms and users. I constantly use Visual Studio 2017, Visual Studio Code - and even others - interchangeably, depending on the exact task I'm trying to accomplish. Seeing that Visual Studio 2017 works well as part of that setup is exciting.
We are currently using the SQL server 2014 Express and we go for the SQL server2017 full std version because of our regulars usage are going very high so,please can you advise us before the upgrade what are the things we need toverify?
I mean in my one of the old pc I have windows 7 with service pack installed I have also updated the powershell to powershell 4 and Microsoft given in his article that windows 7 with service pack 1 with powershell 3 can run this easily so can you tell me whether should I go with visual studio 2017
Okay I think i should give a try to visual studio 2017 because in the official system requirements given by Microsoft says that it can work on windows 7 service pack1 just we have to make sure that our windows is updated anyway thanks a lot for replying my question.
If you do have multiple instances of VS 2017 installed (e.g. Community and Enterprise, or a general release and a preview) and want to find corresponding instance ids, you can use the Visual Studio Locator utility. Included with the installer as of Visual Studio 2017 version 15.2 and later at %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer\vswhere.exe:
For downloading Visual Studio 2017 ISO offline installer, first, we have to download the Web installer. Because Microsoft does not provide a direct ISO download link now. Instead, it provides a small web installer for every version (Enterprise, Professional, and Community). Among these editions, the Community edition is free. Good news is web installer supports the command-line arguments for keeping files available offline.
After completing the download, rename the downloaded exe file to visual_studio.exe then run command prompt ( cmd ) at that folder. Then type following command. This command will download full visual studio will require more disk space. For development specific download please follow the next steps.
The above command will download the full version of Visual Studio which requires large disk space. You can zip or make an ISO file of that folder and can use it any time for full installation. For future installation, you can also keep a backup copy at Google Drive so that if your hard drive crashes still you can download your own copy of a specific version online at any time. 2b1af7f3a8
