no. there is a Windows version and most likely a Mac version but  not 1 version that run on both.

no, because windows builds EXE files which do not run in mac. you should either build a web app (not desktop app) or switch to other languages like java.

If I read it correctly, I believe the question is more from a project source code point of view than the binary it produces or the version of Visual Studio itself.

I think OP intents to ask if he can create a project on Windows Visual Studio and open it in MacOS Visual Studio. What happens after that is of course machine / OS dependent.

But then again, I might be wrong.
