Hello everyone, is Visual Studio 2019 software required to run the SDK? I only use the included sets from MSF and the free libraries from flightTo! thanks in advance
Did you mean C++ Runtime ?
Some may requires it, but this could be specific to each 3PP addon
For the Core Sim, all should be provided and in place
In any case : The latest supported Visual C++ downloads
hum no ! I’m talking about Visual Studio Enterprise 2019 software! C ++ are already installed 2008/2013 / 2015-2019 thank you
Unless you’re coding something new to bring into the Sim which required logic execution and is mostly not required if designing standard objects libraries, I don’t see why we would need a coding IDE ? I re read your initial question and no, the Visual Studio 2019 IDE is not require to use the SDK
i will uninstall it! Thank you
According to the SDK documentation: “C/C++ Projects
To build SimConnect add-ons, the recommended Visual Studio version is Visual Studio 2019, with a minimum version of 2005.” The Enterprise version should also be working. I am using the Community Version and it works just fine. Remember to install the SDK since it is a separate install from MSFS. I recommend that you also install the Visual Studio Plugins when asked.
The IDE is helpfull escpecially with Intellisense and Debugging.
I guess the OP don’t need this, only to use the SDK for building scenery or other parts from inside the sim, otherwise I’ve not really understood
Ahh true. Only if you want to run the SimConnect Samples or building WASM related instruments, then Visual Studio is required.
Right, good precision !
