My apologies if this is the wrong forum to help. If there is a better forum, I would appreciate being redirected.
I am a programmer from decades ago (VMS mainframes & Unix). I am looking to transition a small MS Access database to a Windows Desktop database using Visual Studio Community 2019 written in C++. You ask why - just for something to play and learn with.
I am us using Windows 10 Home version 10.0.18363 (latest)
Laptop - i7 8th Gen, 64bit, 8Gb RAM
I have installed Visual Studio Community 2019, including:
- .NET desktop development
- Desktop development with C++
- Data storage and processing
I am wondering if that is all that is required to replicate my MS Access Database?
A website I was reading made no mention of needing MySQL or similar.
Any guidance or advice will be most welcome.
What I have tried:
Searching on setup resulted in deploying a setup application.
Searching on database focused on database issues
I am looking for the minimum VS Setup to write a small desktop database app in C++
