|16.11 update||C++ compiler|
A full list of updates to the Standard C++ Library can be found on GitHub.
The C/C++ Runtime (14.29.30133) is included in this update. Remember that VS 2015, VS 2017, and VS 2019 share the same runtime redistributable binaries and are binary compatible.
Windows SDK: The Windows 10 SDK (19041) is now the default for all workloads. Windows 10 SDK (20348), which is primarily intended for Windows Server development, is available as an optional individual component. Windows 10 SDK (20348) also provides improved Universal CRT support for
/std:c17. VS 2019 (16.11.4) or later includes the Windows SDK for Windows 11 (10.0.22000) as an optional component as well.
clang/LLVM: VS 2019 Update 11 includes clang 12 for Windows as an optional component.
Windows XP: There is no support for building for Windows XP using the latest toolset. The C++ Windows XP Support for VS 2017 (v141) tools are available as an individual component for targeting Windows XP.
The latest VS 2019 REDIST is binary compatible with the v141 platform toolset, but the DLLs themselves are not compatible with Windows XP. The last version of the Visual C++ REDIST that is compatible with Windows XP is VS 2019 (16.7). See Microsoft Docs.
