Visual Studio can be downloaded from “www.VisualStudio.com/downloads”. Download the Community edition; it is free.
The screen below will be displayed after downloading and beginning the installation process. This screen contains the components that can be installed. Components can always be added later by going to the top menu bar and selecting “Tools -> Get Tools and Features”.
For this book, make sure to have at least “.NET desktop development” checked. Review all the additional components available to install to become familiar with the options. Click the install or modify button to continue the installation process.
