Default Visual Studio Versions

Hi,
a complete beginners question:

in the introduction to this book it is recommended to get the Visual Studio 2013 Professional, not Express because of lack of features.

Currently microsofts official www.visualstudio.com offers Visual Studio 2017 Community, Visual Studio 2017 Professional single license and more 2017 versions, but also the IDE for Visual Studio Professional 2013 for subscribers.

My question is: Will the free Visual Studio 2017 Community suffice for programming with this book, or should I get Visual Studio 2017 Professional, or are the changes from Visual Studio 2013 to 2017 extensive so I should subscribe for the Visual Studio 2013 professional version for the best learning experience?

Also Im currently using Windows 10, should I get a windows 8 installation to complete chapter 18 : Programming for windows 8, or does windows10 support windows8 programming?

Im a pretty new to programming so sorry if Im asking about obvious stuff, thanks.

Update:

I got Chapter 11 and Chapter 12 example files that uses MFC to compile in Visual Studio Community 2017, so it looks like I can use that.

However it says in need to upgrade the toolset to v141, only when i accept that does it compile. Unsure what this means?


Hopefully VS Community 2017 isnt too different from VS2013 when i start to build programs from skratch?

I could always get VS2013 Pro, but as a part time student it would be nice to save the money and use VS2017 Community.

Thumbs up same question

aw2080,
Thanks for posting the question and your progress. I am interested in any new new information you have obtained regarding the question, since your most recent post.

I plan to buy "Beginning Visual C++ 2013", and install Visual Community 2017 in Windows 10. I worked through "Beginning Visual C++ 2008" seven years ago, and need a refresher.
