Visual C++ 1.5
Creator: Microsoft
Platform: Windows 3.1
Year Introduced: 1994

Visual C++ 1.5 was a popular release of the 16 bit line of Visual C++, and was bundled with Visual C++ 2.0. It was followed by 1.52, up to 1.52c which was bundled with Visual C++ 4.0, becoming the last 16 bit release. Although Visual C++ was a Windows IDE, the underlying compiler supported generating DOS executables as well as Windows executables.

Due to the large number of memory models supported in 16 bit Windows, it was not possible to have a CRT DLL. All applications were required to statically link the correct version of the CRT for the type of binary being constructed (DOS, Windows EXE, Windows DLL) with the correct memory model for the application.
