That's right Farhan. VS is an IDE like Android Studio and Eclipse and many others which enables you to write, debug and publish your programs easily without involving you with low-level mechanisms. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Visual_Studio]

Of course. Without any doubt.

Thank God! ;) Good luck, my friend

No, it's not by no means! [https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/install/install-visual-studio]

Absolutely you can, my friend.

Clearly YES!

Visual Studio Code Blocks Dev c++ etc...

Both convey the same meaning.

Can I go?! ;D

Yes it is. with support of a variety of compilers like MSVS gcc g++ clang etc

Is there any question?! ;)

It facilitates your hard work a great deal. Without IDE you are going to experience an enormously hard time, especially for large projects. (I don't dare to work without it!)

+12

Of course my friend. you can use notepad and command -line compilers to do so. (If you want to kill yourself!)

That's right. [https://netbeans.org/features/cpp/]

Android studio is used specifically to create apps for your android devices. But VS is a multipurpose environment and many other IDE's (like Unity and UE4) plug their coding/scripting terminals to VS. In addition to that, you can absolutely make your stand alone apps for different platforms using VS.

Another non-programming example is 3D modeling for games. in this case you have a pipeline like this: Build your model in Maya(E.G.) -> export it with .fbx format -> import it into your engine.

Exactly. In fact that's a new facility that has been added to VS since 2013 version.

Yes you can. But I as far as I know you can make stand-alone apps for Windows (either console, or GUI) x86 x64 and ARM
