VS 2022 Update 9


Chuck Walbourn -

Visual Studio 2022 Update 9 (a.k.a. 17.9) is now available for download, including the updated Community edition. For more information, see the Visual Studio Team blog and the release notes.

Note that VS 2022 17.4, 17.6, 17.8, and 17.10 are supported through the Long Term Servicing Channel.

VS Content Pipeline: Note that in 17.9.3 the use of the Autodesk FBX SDK was removed due to a security issue. The result is that the 3D Model Viewer was removed and the MeshContentTask no longer functions for converting meshes to CMO files. For Wavefront OBJ to CMO, you can use meshconvert in the DirectXMesh project. I’m looking at adding support for exporting CMO to the ATG Samples Content Exporter.

Compiler and CRT

VS 2022 Update 9 includes a revision of the C/C++ compiler (19.39.33519.0). See this blog post for information on recent codegen improvements.
