I'm trying to install Visual D with the minimum number of dependencies.

The VisualD installation instructions mention that the following packages are necessary: (http://rainers.github.io/visuald/visuald/Installation.html)

* C++ development tools
* Windows SDK

In the Visual Studio installer, there no component named C++ development tools, however
there's a workload named Desktop Development with C++ that includes a lot of components:

* MSCV v142 - VS 2019 C++ x64/x86 build tools
* Windows 10 SDK
* Just-In-Time debugger
* C++ profiling tools
* C++ make tools for Windows
* C++ ATL for v142 build tools
* Test Adapter for Boost.Test
* Test Adapter for Google Test
* LiveShare
* IntelliCode


Does anyone know what's the minimum components for that list that need to be installed?

Thanks in advance!

The names keep changing all the time.

These two should be enough. They come with a lot of stuff not used when compiling D files only, though.

Thank you Rainer,

I confirm it works with just those 2 packages.
