Code Metrics for C++ Unmanaged code in Visual Studio 2019? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are there any plug-ins/tools available for Visual Studio UNMANAGED code?   We have a large code base/customer set of MFC VS6.0 code out there getting migrated to the VS2013/VS2019 and have new products in VS2019 using UNMANAGED C++ code for the testing of integrated circuits in a Windows Embedded environment.  This likely will always be unmanaged code.

    So far the only viable tool for software metrics is CCCC available at but I was expecting that Microsoft would have integrated code metrics that were better.  The code metrics offered for Managed code look good... but there are a lot of developers out in the world doing unmanaged code development.

  • Hi Ross Youngblood(RY),

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    We recommend you could install Code Metric extension in VS IDE. I have installed and test it, it is able to work for C++ unmanaged code.

    Hope it could help you.

    Best Regards,
