Generates Visual Studio 15 (VS 2017) project files.

Project Types¶

Only Visual C++ and C# projects may be generated. Other types ofprojects (JavaScript, Powershell, Python, etc.) are not supported.

Instance Selection¶

Studio

New in version 3.9: VS 2017 supports multiple installations on the same machine.The CMAKE_GENERATOR_INSTANCE variable may be set as acache entry containing the absolute path to a Visual Studio instance.If the value is not specified explicitly by the user or a toolchain file,CMake queries the Visual Studio Installer to locate VS instances, choosesone, and sets the variable as a cache entry to hold the value persistently.

New in version 3.11: When CMake first chooses an instance, if the VS150COMNTOOLS environmentvariable is set and points to the Common7/Tools directory withinone of the instances, that instance will be used. Otherwise, if morethan one instance is installed we do not define which one is chosenby default.

Platform Selection¶

The default target platform name (architecture) is Win32.

The CMAKE_GENERATOR_PLATFORM variable may be set, perhapsvia the cmake(1)-A option, to specify a target platformname (architecture). For example:

  • cmake-G'VisualStudio152017'-AWin32

  • cmake-G'VisualStudio152017'-Ax64

  • cmake-G'VisualStudio152017'-AARM

  • cmake-G'VisualStudio152017'-AARM64

For compatibility with CMake versions prior to 3.1, one may specifya target platform name optionally at the end of the generator name.This is supported only for:

VisualStudio152017Win64

Specify target platform x64.

VisualStudio152017ARM

Specify target platform ARM.

Toolset Selection¶

The v141 toolset that comes with Visual Studio 15 2017 is selected bydefault. The CMAKE_GENERATOR_TOOLSET option may be set, perhapsvia the cmake(1)-T option, to specify another toolset.

New in version 3.8: For each toolset that comes with this version of Visual Studio, there arevariants that are themselves compiled for 32-bit (x86) and64-bit (x64) hosts (independent of the architecture they target).By default this generator uses the 32-bit variant even on a 64-bit host.One may explicitly request use of either the 32-bit or 64-bit host toolsby adding either host=x86 or host=x64 to the toolset specification.See the CMAKE_GENERATOR_TOOLSET variable for details.

New in version 3.14: Added suport for host=x86 option.

Welcome to Visual Studio 2019! In this version, it's easy to choose and install just the features you need. And because of its reduced minimum footprint, it installs quickly and with less system impact.

Welcome to a new way to install Visual Studio! In this version, we've made it easier for you to choose and install just the features you need. We've also reduced the minimum footprint of Visual Studio so that it installs more quickly and with less system impact than ever before.

Note

This topic applies to Visual Studio on Windows. For Visual Studio for Mac, see Install Visual Studio for Mac.

Ready to install? We'll walk you through it, step-by-step.

Step 1 - Make sure your computer is ready for Visual Studio

Before you begin installing Visual Studio:

  1. Check the system requirements. These requirements help you know whether your computer supports Visual Studio 2017.

  2. Apply the latest Windows updates. These updates ensure that your computer has both the latest security updates and the required system components for Visual Studio.

  3. Reboot. The reboot ensures that any pending installs or updates don't hinder the Visual Studio install.

  4. Free up space. Remove unneeded files and applications from your %SystemDrive% by, for example, running the Disk Cleanup app.

For questions about running previous versions of Visual Studio side by side with Visual Studio 2017, see the Visual Studio compatibility details.

For questions about running previous versions of Visual Studio side by side with Visual Studio 2019, see the Visual Studio 2019 Platform Targeting and Compatibility page.

Step 2 - Download Visual Studio

Next, download the Visual Studio bootstrapper file.

To get a bootstrapper for Visual Studio 2017, see the Visual Studio previous versions download page for details on how to do so.

To do so, choose the following button, choose the edition of Visual Studio that you want, choose Save, and then choose Open folder.

Step 3 - Install the Visual Studio installer

Visual Studio 15.9

Run the bootstrapper file to install the Visual Studio Installer. This new lightweight installer includes everything you need to both install and customize Visual Studio.

  1. From your Downloads folder, double-click the bootstrapper that matches or is similar to one of the following files:

    • vs_community.exe for Visual Studio Community
    • vs_professional.exe for Visual Studio Professional
    • vs_enterprise.exe for Visual Studio Enterprise

    If you receive a User Account Control notice, choose Yes.

  2. We'll ask you to acknowledge the Microsoft License Terms and the Microsoft Privacy Statement. Choose Continue.

Step 4 - Choose workloads

After the installer is installed, you can use it to customize your installation by selecting the feature sets—or workloads—that you want. Here's how.

  1. Find the workload you want in the Visual Studio Installer.

    For example, choose the '.NET desktop development' workload. It comes with the default core editor, which includes basic code editing support for over 20 languages, the ability to open and edit code from any folder without requiring a project, and integrated source code control.

  2. After you choose the workload(s) you want, choose Install.

    Next, status screens appear that show the progress of your Visual Studio installation.

  1. Find the workload you want in the Visual Studio Installer.

    For example, choose the 'ASP.NET and web development' workload. It comes with the default core editor, which includes basic code editing support for over 20 languages, the ability to open and edit code from any folder without requiring a project, and integrated source code control.

  2. After you choose the workload(s) you want, choose Install.

    Next, status screens appear that show the progress of your Visual Studio installation.

Tip

At any time after installation, you can install workloads or components that you didn't install initially. If you have Visual Studio open, go to Tools > Get Tools and Features.. which opens the Visual Studio Installer. Or, open Visual Studio Installer from the Start menu. From there, you can choose the workloads or components that you wish to install. Then, choose Modify.

Step 5 - Choose individual components (Optional)

If you don't want to use the Workloads feature to customize your Visual Studio installation, or you want to add more components than a workload installs, you can do so by installing or adding individual components from the Individual components tab. Choose what you want, and then follow the prompts.

Step 6 - Install language packs (Optional)

By default, the installer program tries to match the language of the operating system when it runs for the first time. To install Visual Studio in a language of your choosing, choose the Language packs tab from the Visual Studio Installer, and then follow the prompts.

Change the installer language from the command line

Visual Studio 15 Pro

Another way that you can change the default language is by running the installer from the command line. For example, you can force the installer to run in English by using the following command: vs_installer.exe --locale en-US. The installer will remember this setting when it is run the next time. The installer supports the following language tokens: zh-cn, zh-tw, cs-cz, en-us, es-es, fr-fr, de-de, it-it, ja-jp, ko-kr, pl-pl, pt-br, ru-ru, and tr-tr.

Step 7 - Select the installation location (Optional)

Visual

Visual Studio 15 Product Key

New in 15.7: You can now reduce the installation footprint of Visual Studio on your system drive. You can choose to move the download cache, shared components, SDKs, and tools to different drives, and keep Visual Studio on the drive that runs it the fastest.

You can select a different drive only when you first install Visual Studio. If you've already installed it and want to change drives, you must uninstall Visual Studio and then reinstall it.

For more information, see the Select installation locations page.

Step 8 - Start developing

  1. After Visual Studio installation is complete, choose the Launch button to get started developing with Visual Studio.

  2. Choose File, and then choose New Project.

  3. Select a project type.

    For example, to build a C++ app, choose Installed, expand Visual C++, and then choose the C++ project type that you want to build.

    To build a C# app, choose Installed, expand Visual C#, and then choose the C# project type that you want to build.

  1. After Visual Studio installation is complete, choose the Launch button to get started developing with Visual Studio.

  2. On the start window, choose Create a new project.

  3. In the search box, enter the type of app you want to create to see a list of available templates. The list of templates depends on the workload(s) that you chose during installation. To see different templates, choose different workloads.

    You can also filter your search for a specific programming language by using the Language drop-down list. You can filter by using the Platform list and the Project type list, too.

  4. Visual Studio opens your new project, and you're ready to code!
