What version of Visual Studio ?

Hi developers on edge :-)

 

Until now I have developed all the macro and apps that interact with Solid Edge using the old dog VB6. The main reason is that I have very little time to spend on this activities and was easyer for me to start with a simple tool that I did know from the past.

 

So now I want a fresh start and need to choose what version of Visual Studio to move.

I will write new apps from scratch so I just need to know what version is best to install.

 

Focus point:

- must be a free tool

- must be visual basic style language

- must be easy to learn

- must be compatible with Solid Edge SDK

 

I had a look in the past at the Visual Studio Express editions that now it is called Visual Studio Community; is it good to jump on the latest release of it ?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Francesco

Re: What version of Visual Studio ?

Visual Studio Community is fantastic. The current release is 2015. Historically speaking, the Express versions were a joke. Microsoft has completely fixed any limitation that previously existed. I do all of my at home work using Visual Studio Community 2015.
