Visual Studio Community 2017 is free. One of the drawbacks of C++ is the lack of Windows forms. To duplicate forms in C++ is extremely tedious. But there is an extention available that gives us back this power:

This allows us to use managed C++ with forms. Most simple C++ programs convert easily to Managed C++ by just changing the compiler directives. Google IJW (it just works).

Code included. For FSW, compiled as 64-bit. Alter the shortcut property to add the 'Start in' path to the root folder of FSW.
