Visual Studio for Desktop

Visual Studio for desktop is a fine tool for developing applications in a desktop. Today, the software world works very differently than in the recent past. But Microsoft has given the option of downloading Visual Studio for desktop and use it for as long as one wishes to build applications for your desktop.
I have built applications on desktop using Visual Studio for Desktop. I have used text file as a data source in one of these two applications.
Though .NET framework or xaml (pronounced zammel) is not used in these, but still it can create all the necessary applications that one envisages in an office. Database connection option is there and I think ADO may not work. ODBC will surely work. And probably OLEDB too.

Desktop WPF application can be done in Visual Studio 2013 for desktop. It uses xaml.
Database connection is through OLEDB. And .NET Framework for OLEDB is right.
