And since you seem to be starting, why jump into a version that is already 10 years old.

There are 2 free editions of Visual Studio 2015. Visual Studio Express, a toned down version that has enough for the amateur programmer, and Visual Studio Community, that is almost equivalent to the Professional edition, but free only for individual programmers or small organisations. If you are a professional programmer, the Community edition offers tools that, in 2005, were offered only in the vigger and very costlier editions of VS.

Which edition did you download. Only the Express and Community editions are free. You see the edition on the splash screen when you launch the application.
