U++ is a C++ cross-platform rapid application development framework focused on programmers productivity. It includes a set of libraries (GUI, SQL, etc.), and an integrated development environment.
Windows release is a simple archive .7z archive. Unpack to directory of your preference, then just run 'theide.exe'. U++ does not write anything to registry or outside its directory. The archive contains CLANG based Win32 toolchain and also SDL 2, OpenSSL, MySql and PostgreSQL client libraries. TheIDE will also setup Microsoft C++ compiler if it finds one. U++ minimum requirement is Windows 7 64 with latest patches for theide to run and Windows 7 64 or 32 with latest patches for compiled applications.
