Visual C++ 2.0
Creator: Microsoft
Platform: Windows NT
Previous Version: Visual C++ 1.1
Next Version: Visual C++ 4.0
Date Released: 1994

Visual C++ 2.0 was a full 32 bit release of Visual C++, bundled with Visual C++ 1.5 for 16 bit support. Visual C++ 2.0 was followed by 2.1 and 2.2. 2.2 was the current release at the time of Windows 95's launch, so changes between these releases was primarily focused on Windows 95 support. Applications compiled with this version using a CRT DLL required MSVCRT20.DLL.
