Windows 10 with Visual Studio Community 2015

Free is good, if it works.
Looking at the latest Visual Studio offerings I found they have a Community version of Visual Studio that supports x86/x64 and mobile as in ARM processors. They also have added a ton (26GB) of Open Source support including running Windows 10 on Raspberry PI2 and applications for Android and IOS(Apple). Thinking this would be a good thing to replace my Visual Studio 2010 kludge I installed the Community version, moved the C:\Program Files\IMSIDesign\TCWP2015\SDK to a WRITABLE location like D:\TurboCad\SDK then opened D:\TurboCad\SDK\Samples\CPP\App\MakeDwg\MakeDwg.dsp with Visual Studio Community 2015 (VSC 2015). VSC 2015 backed up files then modified the source, I built the project then ran the application D:\TurboCad\Program\MakeDwg.exe - It ran without issues, my first pass was with defaults so this was a x86 program talking to my x64 version of TC. I did get 27 warning but most were due to Windows Kits 8.1 tools that will be removed after I figure out what they are suppose to do.
The whole thing amazed me in that the compiler produced an executable that worked and there was no BSD, for version 1 of VSC 2015 that is a good thing.

I have been using Visual Studio 2015 Community during several months now, initially in beta version, and since a month or so in definitive version. I have used it in conjunction with TurboCad SDK, using VBA and C++,  and still have to find any hitches. It is a good step forward compared to Visual studio 2013, which I have been using before, both in editing and in debugging.
