In this guided tour you will learn about the Visual Studio development environment and about the various types of applications that you can create with Visual C++. This includes command-line application, Windows applications, and even a simple game. This guided tour will also teach you how to create reusable libraries of code, and how to ship your code to customers after you have written and tested it.
Because each topic builds on information in the topics before it, we recommend that you complete the guided tour in order. At the bottom of each topic, you will find navigation links to the next topic in the guided tour, and a link to the previous topic if you want to go back and review something.
The guided tour assumes that you understand the fundamentals of the C++ language.
