The steps to install Visual Studio for Windows development with Flutter:

  1. Download Visual Studio:
    • Go to the Visual Studio downloads page.
    • Choose the edition you want to install. For Flutter development, the “Community” edition is sufficient and free for individual use.
  2. Run the Installer:
    • Once the download is complete, run the installer.
    • If prompted by a User Account Control dialog, click “Yes” to allow the installer to make changes to your system.
  3. Select Workloads:
    • In the installer, you’ll be presented with a list of workloads to choose from.
    • Locate the “Desktop development with C++” workload and check the box next to it.
    • This workload includes the necessary components for developing Windows applications, including the Windows SDK and C++ tools.
  4. Install:
    • Click the “Install” button at the bottom right to begin the installation process.
    • The installer will download and install the selected components. This process may take some time, depending on your internet connection and the components being installed.
  5. Completion:
    • Once the installation is complete, you might be prompted to restart your computer.
    • After restarting, you can launch Visual Studio from the Start menu.
  6. Verify Installation:
    • To verify that Visual Studio is installed correctly for Flutter development, you can run flutter doctor again in your command prompt or terminal.
    • If everything is set up correctly, you should no longer see the warning about Visual Studio being missing.

By following these steps, you should have Visual Studio installed and configured for developing Windows applications with Flutter. If you encounter any issues during the installation process
