Short for Visual Studio Industry Partners, the Microsoft VSIP program was created to educate and support independent software vendors (ISVs), systems integrators (SIs), academic institutions, corporations and developers interested in integrating tools, components, and languages into the Visual Studio IDE. In addition to offering the technology for advanced integration scenarios, the VSIP program includes: Community and technical support, Visual Studio licensing options, and Co-marketing opportunities.

The Microsoft Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) is designed from the ground up to be the host for multiple languages and development tools, including Visual Basic, Visual C#, and Visual C++. The IDE can be easily extended so that Visual Studio customers have a complete set of tightly integrated tools for their development projects.
