Visual Studio 2015 Compatibility

Recommended Posts

I understand Visual Studio 2013 is required, but are there any plans to make the library 2015 compatible in the future?

Without VS2013 installed, only Visual Studio 2015 (v140) and Visual Studio 2015 - Windows XP (v140_xp) are the only options under Platform Toolset. Is there a way to install just the needed toolset from the installer, don't wish to have two IDEs installed if I don't need too.

 

Whoops, I guess not. Still any information of this being soon, someday, or never would be nice.

It's a matter of when I feel like it would be a convenient time to make large numbers of people install the new version.

Thank you for the answer. I understand that only true nerds care about what version of IDE they use, but I figure I'll ask in-case someone down the road has a similar question. I might need VS2013 still anyway due to some ties I still have left with the Source Engine.

 

I'll still try the toolset solution that Roland suggested because why not? I just gotta hope it does not fail to install something like it has the last two times.

Compiled on VS2015 using Toolset VS2013

You have to have VS2013 installed, but once done that you can forget it.

Basically, I can't make a change unless I am simultaneously rolling out a big benefit. So it's best to do this right before a major release. Otherwise the reaction is "oh great things stopped working for no reason".

Is it likely to cause problems if I have BOTH versions of visual studio on my computer?

I have 3 versions of VS installed on my work computer, no problems at all.
