2. Install Visual Studio

Visual Studio is a software development IDE from Microsoft. It was once a very expensive software package for professionals, and now it has been released open-source and free! The community edition can be downloaded for free and gives you the power to create .Net applications. In this step, we'll use ARC to detect an existing installation of Visual Studio and download the latest.

1) Load ARC

2) Press Project -> Create Skill




3) The Create Robot Skill window will check for an existing installation of Visual Studio. If there is not one detected, a DOWNLOAD button will be presented.




4) Press the Download link if presented, or get the Community Edition of Visual Studio by clicking here.

Dependency
Ensure you have .Net 4.7.2 framework installed. If you keep up-to-date with Windows Updates and ARC runs without problems, then you must have .Net 4.7.2. Many programs are built with .Net 4.7.2 and therefore it's uncommon for a computer to not have it. So, if ARC works then you don't need to download and install .Net 4.7.2
