The installer is a little under 100Mb (but expands to a bit more) but maybe try the 'universal' IDE of Visual Studio Code - https://code.visualstudio.com/syntonica wrote:I installed VS Community, the very basic c++ install. It raped me for 10Gb hard drive space and I can't even tell if I've got the right compiler. It seems to want to "manage" me and compile to .NET4 drivel. If I wanted a VM, I'd go Java. Next step is to completely uninstall this crap and try a different solution that takes only 100Mb or so.
That way you can use your compiler of choice (I use GCC) for whatever programming language of choice you want - all under one 'roof'. You may need to find documentation online for build instructions to get VSC to 'talk' to the relevant compiler for each project
