This is the commercially released version of Visual Studio 2012 Professional. It uses the .NET framework version 4.5

  • Semantic Colorization: Improved syntax coloring, various user-defined or default colors for C++ syntax such as macros, enumerations, typenames, functions etc.
  • Reference Highlighting: Selection of a symbol highlights all of the references to that symbol within scope.
  • New Solution Explorer: New solution explorer allows for visualization of class and file hierarchies within a solution/project. Searching for calls to functions and uses of classes will be supported.
  • Automatic Display of IntelliSense list: IntelliSense will automatically be displayed whilst typing code, as opposed to previous versions where it had to be explicitly invoked through use of certain operators (i.e. the scope operator (::)) or shortcut keys (Ctrl-Space or Ctrl-J).
  • Member List Filtering: IntelliSense uses fuzzy logic to determine which functions/variables/types to display in the list.
  • Code Snippets: Code snippets are included in IntelliSense to automatically generate relevant code based on the user's parameters, custom code snippets can be created.

A major new feature is support for WinRT and C++/CX (Component Extensions). Support for C++ AMP (GPGPU programming) is also included.

Supported .NET Framework versions: 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5

HowTo / Notes

Winbind component

Winbind component

Make sure you installed 'winbind' component with your distribution package manager.

This is needed for the -Zi option of the compiler, and other mechanisms that handle 'PDB' (Program Data Base) files.


$ aptitude install winbind


$ sudo dnf install samba-winbind*.x86_64 samba-winbind*.i686

/home/yourlogin/.wine is not owned by you / (Permission denied)

Never run wine as root (su, sudo)! Wine doesn't require to be run as root!

You will screw your WINEPREFIX and possibly other things up. If you have run Wine as root you need to:

$ sudo rm -rf ~/.wine

and then run winecfg to set Wine folder structure back up. If you used winetricks script as root you might also need to:

$ sudo rm -rf ~/.cache/winetricks/

Again: Just run wine as regular user and all should be fine.
