Visual Studio 2017 – Enterprise Edition

Downloaded and installed Visual Studio 2017 – Enterprise Edition. Started the download and went to lunch. When I got back the software was installed. I provided the license and the product was registered. The entire operation seemed to me to be much streamlined.

Today I decided to give VS 2017 a try. After the IDE was up and running I selected the LinkedLists project that I developed using VS 2013. The project was loaded and the following window popped up:

Apparently C++ is not part of the initial configuration / installation. I assume this is the case given that the language is not managed like C#.

I clicked on the <Install> button and waited for the operation to complete. I already had lunch so I had to wait. In order not to be staring at my monitors, I spent some time reading online articles. I would estimate that the operation took about 30 minutes.

After the installation / update completed I had to reboot my machine.

After logging back on, I started VS 2017 and opened the LinkedLists project. It came up. Performed some simple configurations and rebuilt the project. It ran without problems as indicated by the following console screen capture:
