Build Tools for Visual Studio is a tool for producing native and managed MSBuild-based applications without the need for Visual Studio installation . When installing this program you have the option to install C ++ compilers and libraries such as MFC, ATL, C ++ / CLI support, .NET kernel and .net core. This 2015 tool was released as Visual C ++ Tools, with the advantage of being able to compile C ++ programs without installing additional overheads, including Visual Studio Heavy IDE. This tool was later expanded with the addition of optional components such as ATL, MFC, NET, C ++ / CLI development environment and many Windows SDKs. With this tool you have the latest version of MSBuild installer standalone so you can build .NET installation packages.
For Visual Studio 2017, a new version of Build Tools has been released that uses a new installer to access MSBuild for both managed and unmanaged applications. This installer merges both the Visual C ++ Build Tools and Microsoft Build Tools into one. By default, all MSBuild prerequisites are installed for both managed and native applications with Visual Studio Build Tools, including things like the MSBuild command prompt – for building applications – and other options such as Visual C ++ Build Tools. Provides more for the developers of Native ++ C. These are very similar to the ones you encountered when installing Visual Studio 2017, the desktop version of C ++.
