Windows Virtual

(1/1)

Kevin Perez:
Hey there everyone.

I have installed Linux Lite on my computer. Thanks to having difficulty getting a c++ compiler to work on this computer, I wish to be able to use Windows 10. Ideally, I would not need to dual boot, because I can merely run a virtual box with Windows 10 installed.

What would you recommend I do to make this happen? Yes, my plan after it is installed, I would then run Microsoft's Visual Studio, because, unlike the two c++ compilers, this software actually works right out of the box.

Install VirtualBox then install Windows - Its all via the GUI, pretty straight forward...


BUT... and Not sure what C++ you've tried...


1) There is a Linux version of Visual Studio (code) https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/

2) Geany is another IDE editor - found/installable from Lite Software

3) Atom - another IDE editor similar to VS - https://atom.io/ - https://github.com/atom/atom/releases/tag/v1.60.0


I use Atom mostly but I do also from time to time use Geany...
