You cannot integrate TwinCAT 3 in Visual Studio if Visual Studio was installed after TwinCAT 3. In this case you have to uninstall TwinCAT 3 first, install Visual Studio and then reinstall TwinCAT 3.
Example: After installing TwinCAT 3, you decide to also program in C ++ and would like to install a full version of Visual Studio later.

In this case, a Visual Studio 2017 shell supplied by TwinCAT 3 is installed as the standard development environment for TwinCAT.
Case 2: One or more full version (s) of Visual Studio 2013-2019 is / are installed on the development computer.
The setup of TwinCAT 3 offers you the option of choosing which full version of Visual Studio TwinCAT 3 is to be integrated into (multiple selection possible).
Case 3: A Visual Studio 2013-2019 shell is installed on the development computer.
The setup of TwinCAT 3 offers you the option of integrating TwinCAT 3 into the already installed Visual Studio Shell (instead of installing the standard Visual Studio 2019 Shell)

Download and installation of the Visual Studio Shell
With the exception of the Visual Studio 2019 Shell contained in the installer, Beckhoff does not deliver any other versions of the Visual Studio Shell together with TwinCAT 3, but you can download and install them free of charge from the Microsoft website. Visual Studio Shells are free, but do not allow high-level language programming such as C ++ or C #.
Installation requirements: Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10
Go to http://www.microsoft.com/download in your browser.
- Find, download and install Visual Studio 201x Shell (Isolated) Redistributable Package.
- Find, download and install Visual Studio 201x Shell (Integrated) Redistributable Package.
Visual Studio 201x Shell (Integrated) Redistributable Package is an add-on to Visual Studio 201x Shell (Isolated) Redistributable Package, so the "Isolated" version must be installed first. Details can be found on the Microsoft website.
Use of TwinCAT C ++
If you want to use TwinCAT C ++, you have to install the option "Microsoft Foundation Classes for C ++" when installing Visual Studio. Otherwise the SDK is missing and TwinCAT C ++ is not available even with a full Visual Studio.
The language used in TwinCAT depends on the language of the pre-installed Visual Studio. If TwinCAT 3 is to be displayed in German, Visual Studio (Shell) must also be installed and selected in German.
You can install the Visual Studio language packs after installing TwinCAT 3. You can then switch the language in the settings of Visual Studio.
