Visual Studio 2019 Installation Instructions
- Visual Studio
- Visual Studio Community 2019
This section describes the installation procedure of the tool "Visual Studio" used to develop programs.
This procedure uses the "Community" version, but the installation procedure is the same for Professional and Enterprise except that the method of obtaining it differs from DVD or ISO.
Please note that Visual Studio Community 2019 can be used free of charge for personal development purposes, but there are restrictions on its use by companies and other legal entities.
- Obtain a Microsoft account on the Microsoft site in advance. If you have a Microsoft account to create a login account when you deployed Windows 10, you can use it.
- Install the tool, so sign in to Windows with an account with administrator privileges.
Download the installer from the following website: The actual contents of the installation are downloaded during the installation, so the download of the installer itself is finished immediately.
Click Community Free Download.
Save as it starts saving. By default it is saved in the Downloads folder,
Click Continue. Wait for the installer to complete as it is updated.
The installation screen appears. Visual Studio 2019 does not install all features, but you can choose which features to install for development purposes.
Some of the major developments include:
- I want to make a program that runs on a website such as the Internet
- ASP.NET and Web Development
- Azure Development
- Node.js Development
- I want to create a program that runs on Windows
- .NET desktop development
- Universal Windows Platform Development
- I want to make a program that works on a smartphone
- Mobile development with .NET
- I want to make a game
- Game development with Unity
- Game development in C++
Here's the ". NET Desktop Development. If checked, the items to be installed will be added on the right side.
Workload determines the high-level installation items, but if you want to determine the installation items in detail, select Individual Components.
If you do not know the details, there is no problem to skip it. Additional installations can be made later.
When you have finished checking the box, click the "Install" button at the bottom right. The installation will take place while downloading the necessary files. It will take some time, so wait for a while until it is completed.
When the installation is complete, Visual Studio starts. You can close the installer screen above. The first time you start Visual Studio, you'll be prompted for your account, so sign in with the Microsoft account you already have. (You can do it later.)
If you're using two-step verification, enter the code.
When you are done signing in, the project creation screen will be displayed. This completes the installation and initial setup.
Creating and Running a Project
I would like to try running the program as a test. Select Create New Project in the lower right.
I want to display the screen for the time being, so select "WPF App (.NET Core)" and click the "Next" button.
The name of the program you want to create is the name of the project. The name of the program that you actually show to the user can be changed later, so it is safer to enter it in alphanumeric characters as an internal name. Specify the folder path to create the program anywhere you want. Once entered, click the "Create" button.
After a while, the actual development screen will appear. From here, we will design the screen and develop the program, but first we will check whether the program works.
There is a button for "Project name" ▶ on the toolbar, so click it.
Then a window appeared. Also, I did not edit anything, but I was able to confirm that the program works for the time being. You can stop the program by closing the window that appears.
From here, let's create a program freely according to the purpose.
