Visual C++ 4.0
Creator: Microsoft
Platform: Windows NT 3.51+, Windows 95
Previous Version: Visual C++ 2.0
Next Version: Visual C++ 5.0
Date Released: 1995

Visual C++ 4.0 was the first release designed for Windows 95, including a Windows 95 style IDE. Visual C++ 4.0 was followed by 4.1 and 4.2. These added support for various internet technologies as Microsoft entered the browser wars. Applications compiled with this version using a CRT DLL required MSVCRT40.DLL. Because Visual C++ 4.0 arrived slightly after Windows 95, the first release of Windows 95 did not include this DLL.
