      I wanted to update the status to make sure you know that we hear you. This isn’t straightforward to deliver for obvious reasons: Visual Studio installs a disparate variety of tools, runtimes and SDKs, many of which come from third parties or other parts of Microsoft. We recognize that developers would love to see something lighter and while we have nothing new to announce at this stage, we are spending a lot of time thinking about how we can improve Visual Studio installation.

      Thanks for the feedback!

      How about letting VS use SDKs that are hosted in containers? That would probably be a nice solution.

        Perhaps there can be a C++ module version of Windows.h or the whole SDK in the future that will do away with these nasties and also improve compile time.

          Can't it just have a small text editor in the window that shows the colours as you change them for the selected language? And click on the item in the previous window to change the colour or something? I change random things trying to get the colours that I want until it works :(

            Is this going to be in 2015 update3 or what? Where/when/how can I use it? :)

            @Philippe what are you talking about? You think regenerating the same PCH for 600+ projects is a good idea? You're talking GB's of disk space and maybe 30 mins to generate them all! Vs a few MB and a less than 1 min to generate + share for all projects.

            Please vote for the "support c++11 modules" idea, this should reduce the algorithmic complexity of the build

                These change per compiler version - might as well just make it extern "C" {} or link to the import lib directly so it just works.

                  An MS implementation of rust would be very cool indeed.
