Visual C++ 5.0
Creator: Microsoft
Platform: Windows NT 4.0+/Windows 95
Previous Version: Visual C++ 4.0
Date Released: 1997

Visual C++ 5.0 was the first release following Windows NT 4.0 and included updated support for it. Applications compiled with Visual C++ 5.0 using a CRT DLL needed MSVCRT.DLL to function. This release defaults to compiling executables with /FIXED and dropped support for Win32s. By the time of this release, support for MIPS and PowerPC had been dropped on Windows NT, so 5.0 existed as an Intel version and a RISC version which only supported Alpha.
