Windows desktop development with C++ in Visual Studio

Vahe Minasyan

The Windows desktop platform has long been the most popular platform among C++ application developers.  With C++ and Visual Studio, you use Windows SDKs to target many versions of Windows ranging from Windows XP to Windows 10, which is well over a billion devices.  Popular desktop applications like Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, and Google Chrome all are built using the same Win32 APIs that serve as the foundation for Windows desktop development.  Developing for Windows desktop allows you to reach the highest number of users on any non-mobile development platform.
