Visual Studio Express is a programming interface development environment (IDE) that lets users code applications in various languages, such as Visual Basic, C and C++. Support for Intel processors is built in to the software and enabled by default, but if you want your applications to run properly on the ARM microchip framework, you need to change the options in Visual Studio so that applications are compiled for ARM instead of for Intel.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1
