Visual C++ 1.1
Creator: Microsoft
Platform: Windows NT
Previous Version: Windows NT 3.1 SDK
Next Version: Visual C++ 2.0
Year Introduced: 1993

Visual C++ 1.1 was the first 32 bit release of Visual C++. The IDE was visually similar to the 16 bit versions of Visual C++, such as Visual C++ 1.5, but the compiler and toolchain where improved versions of the ones that shipped with the Windows NT 3.1 SDK. Applications compiled with this version using a CRT DLL required MSVCRT10.DLL, which is not common and not preinstalled on any OS release.

The original linker that shipped with this release was designed for NT 3.1 and is incompatible with NT 3.5 in that it will fail to truncate executables correctly, leaving them as multiples of 2Mb. A fix for this bug was posted to Microsoft's now defunct ftp site at . Frustratingly, it indicates the same version number.
