Recently, Windows had launched ARM-based Windows 10 just recently which allowed installation of Windows on ARM-based processors other than the Intel-based chips. Now, Microsoft is optimizing the software side on these platforms.

The famous code compiler for Windows, Microsoft Visual Studio (version 15.9), could be used for compiling ARM64 applications. This capability was previously limited only to 32bit applications giving developers very little workspace as the world has since then progressed to quality 64bit ARM applications.

The capability to run ARM64-based applications on Windows 10 is a manifestation of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
