Hi N A,
If you’ve never used Visual Studio or C#, then even setting up a simple project can sometimes be quite troublesome. Learn the IDE first.
And if you want to make interop calls from some other languages, let’s say Python, to a C# dll, then bear in mind that this is not as easy as it seems to be, as C# dll normally do not have export functions. You have to use some 3rd party projects (e.g. DllExport) to accomplish this. And to use them correctly you really need to learn some C# first.
Or you can go the server-client way, sending data through sharedmemory or something. Still not easy, I think.
If I were you, I’d go for VS2019 and C++. Things might be quicker if you can use C++.
