MFC in VS17 Community; backward compatability

    Question

  • I know it's early days, but before I download and install VS17 I wonder if anyone can tell me whether the Community version of VS17 supports MFC.  Also, since the last version I have actively used is VS10 Pro, is there any chance I can still use project files from that  version?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Fletch,

    Many thanks - that definitely answers my first question.  And your link makes me hopeful that the upgrade wizard can do its magic (though tbh I've not had successs upgrading from earlier versions to VS10).
