Turn great ideas into amazing software. Visual Studio Professional 2022 is a fully featured development environment that developers around the world know and love. Enhance your productivity, write high-quality code, and re-imagine collaboration with an advanced suite of tools and built-in integrations to tackle the most challenging application development workflows and deliver innovative applications.
Productive Scale to work on projects of any size and complexity with
a 64-bit IDE. Code with a new Razor editor that can refactor
across files. Diagnose issues with visualizations for async
operations and automatic analyzers.
Modern Develop cross-platform mobile and desktop apps with .NET
MAUI. Build responsive Web UIs in C# with Blazor. Build,
debug, and test .NET and C++ apps in Linux environments. Use
hot reload capabilities across .NET and C++ apps. Edit
running ASP.NET pages in the web designer view.
Innovative AI-powered code completions. Work together in real-time
with shared coding sessions. Clone repos, navigate work
items, and stage individual lines for commits. Automatically
set up CI/CD workflows that can deploy to Azure.
Scales to any project Visual Studio 2022 is the best Visual Studio
ever. Our first 64-bit IDE makes it easier
to work with even bigger projects and more
complex workloads. The stuff you do every
day—like typing code and switching
branches—feels more fluid more responsive.
And out-of-memory errors? They’re about to
be a distant memory.
Inside the code editor
Type less, code more
IntelliCode is a powerful set of automatic
code completion tools that understand your
code context: variable names, functions, and
the type of code you’re writing. This makes
IntelliCode able to complete up to a whole
line at once, helping you code more
accurately and confidently.
Deep insights into your code
CodeLens helps you easily find important
insights, like what changes have been made,
what those changes did, and whether you’ve
run unit testing on your method. Essential
information—like references, authors, tests,
and commit history—is right there to guide
you toward the best and most informed
decisions about your work.
Share more than screens
Live Share’s real-time
collaboration sessions speed up your team’s edit and
debugging cycles, no matter the language or platform.
Personalized sessions with access controls and custom editor
settings make sure everyone stays code-consistent.
Getting you ready to ship
Stop problems before they’re problems
Integrated debugging is a core part of every
Visual Studio product. You can step through
your code and look at the values stored in
variables, set watches on variables to see
when values change, examine the execution
path of your code, and just about anything
else you need to check out under the hood.
Analyze how much code you’re testing and see
instant results in a test suite that’s been
optimized for efficiency. Know the impact of
every change you make with advanced features
that test code as you type. With WSL
integration, you can test on both Windows
and Linux to make sure your app runs
Seamless cloud integration
Get the most from Visual Studio 2022
Deploying to the cloud gets even easier. We
supply all the templates you’ll need for common
application types and local emulators. And you
can stay right in Visual Studio to provision
dependencies, like Azure SQL databases and Azure
Storage accounts. You can even diagnose any
issues quickly with the remote debugger attached
directly to your application.
Integrated version control
Visual Studio 2022 has built-in support for Git
version control to clone, create, and open your
own repositories. The Git tool window has
everything you need for committing and pushing
changes to code, managing branches, and
resolving merge conflicts. If you have a GitHub
account, you can manage those repos directly
within Visual Studio.
