The free Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and 2015 Ide's (Community Editions) are free for personal and small business use, download visual studio community from here

 Important for all VS2015 users:

Visual Micro requires C++ to be installed as a Visual Studio language. If you did not activate C++ when you installed Visual Studio, click "Download" and follow the instructions on that page to add C++ to your Visual Studio installation.

 Important for users upgrading from the older add-in version of Visual Micro (applies to vs2012 and 2013 only):

This note applies to Visual Studio 2012 and 2013 Only: Uninstall the older version of Visual Micro using "Control panel>Add or remove programs". After installing this new version you might see some menus or tool bars from the previous release. These can be removed by click "Help>Cleanup Old Version" or by right clicking and removing the bars or menus manually. The order in which you uninstall and install is not important.

 Important for Windows 8 users:

When you run the installer on Windows 8 you might get a warning from SmartScreen, stating that Windows prevented the installer from running.
This is because Visual Micro is not specially certified for Windows 8. If such thing happens, please do the following steps:
- Click More info.
- On the next screen, click Run anyway.
