Make sure you have installed Visual Studio with C++ support. Then go to Visual Micro download site and get the latest add-on and install it.
Start Visual Studio and go to Files->New->Project->Templates->Visual C++-> Visual Micro and choose between an empty Arduino project or a Blink example.
Now open Visual Micro menu and in the IDE record choose Arduino 1.6 then select from Board record what ESP board suits yours.
