There's a simple and speedy way to accelerate Visual Studio C/C++ builds

For the last 15 years, IncrediBuild has been dramatically accelerating the entire Visual Studio C/C++ development experience up to 30x faster with no need for dedicated hardware or maintenance efforts.  That’s why Microsoft chose to make IncrediBuild the only commercial tool integrated directly within Visual Studio.

Since 2002, IncrediBuild has been accelerating Microsoft development. IncrediBuild works together with the Microsoft development team to ensure seamless integration and information sharing. Microsoft also uses IncrediBuild to accelerate your favorite programs and games.

This ensures seamless support and improvements for Microsoft development, including Visual Studio, C++, Native Android C++, C#, MSBuild, MSTest, VSTest, TFS, Xbox and other gaming platforms, Azure, Visual Studio Team Services, and more.

IncrediBuild’s award-winning technology works along with the standard Visual Studio build system and compilers, executing compilation tasks in parallel across multiple computers and processors while offering many advanced features including a stop on the first error, better parallelization, parallel linking and more.

IncrediBuild accelerates your time-consuming tasks like compilations, tests, code analysis, and more, by distributing them across your local network or VM’s, instead of solely relying on your stand-alone machine.

So how does IncrediBuild for Visual Studio work its magic?

Once installed, an IncrediBuild toolbar and menu appear in the Microsoft Visual Studio development environment, offering IncrediBuild’s distributed Build, Rebuild and Batch Build operations. Build progress and results are displayed in the Build Monitor, an innovative output visualization tool. Visual Studio’s standard build operations are left unchanged and can still be used at any time.

IncrediBuild for C# Visual Studio Acceleration

The IncrediBuild C# solution speeds up complex C# builds for all versions of Visual Studio. This benefits users with multiple projects and especially those with loosely-coupled dependencies.  IncrediBuild will execute your C# compilation tasks in parallel according to the dependency rules your solution enforces. For example, if you have 100 independent C# projects IncrediBuild can reach 25 faster compilation times.

Accelerate C# and the .NET Framework for fast development and true continuous integration.
