Microsoft Visual Studio

At our university, the full version of Visual Studio, Professional Edition, is available for academic and administrative staff. To download, you need to download the download tool from http://yazilim.cc.metu.edu.tr. Visual Studio Professional 2019 provides a new installation experience with the Visual Studio Installer, a web-based installer that allows you to download and install only the items you need. Visual Studio no longer supports installing using the .iso file. The Visual Studio Installer removes the requirement to download and manage language packs separately, offering the choice of languages during installation.


Step 1: After starting up the installer, select the components you want to install from the following screen. You can choose "Install while downloading" then press Install buton. 

Step 2: Installer will start downloading components and installing. Wait while the components you selected are downloaded from the internet and installed. Your waiting time will change proportionally with the number of components you select.

Step 3: You can continue by clicking "Sign in" if you have a Visual Studio account on startup, "Sign up" if you want to create an account, or "Not now, maybe later" if you want to continue without creating an account. This setup will continue without account creation.

Step 4: After the installation is complete, you can run Visual Studio by pressing the "Launch" button.

Step 5: You can choose suitable choice. 

Step 6 Activation: To activate Visual Studio, go to Help > Register Product.

Step 7: Select "Unlock with a Product Key" on the right side of the page that opens. You can activate the product with the key that you can obtain from License Software webpage "http://yazilim.cc.metu.edu.tr". When the activation finished "License: Product key applied" message will appear.
