RFA currently doesn't support Visual Studio 2017. I have contacted RFA development for plan on adding support for 7.x version. I will keep you posted.

Hi Veerapath,

I was asking about Visual Studio 15 (vc14) not Visual Studio 17 (although I'm sure that would be useful to others).

Hi @ed.mcconnell,

I misunderstand the version, because the Visual Studio 2015 libraries have already been in the RFA 7.6.2.E4 package. Could you please re-verify your RFA package?

Ah, I see. I assumed "VS" stood for Visual Studio. It's actually the compiler version.

So your *VS140* directories are for Visual Studio 15 (VS15!) which ships compiler version VC14!?

That's not confusing at all.

BTW, I couldn't find any information in your documentation about this in your C++ guide or release notes.

many thanks,

Ed.

Your understanding is correct. The directory name is for compiler version. The version name of Visual Studio is a quite confused. The following table from Wiki is about Visual Studio version information.

Anyway, the following information in the README file is about the VS version.
