      Visual Studio 2013 Shell (Integrated) provides the foundation on which you can seamlessly integrate tools and programming languages in Visual Studio. Because it doesn't contain any programming languages, it's the perfect way to deploy a development environment for your own language. Visual Studio 2013 Shell (Integrated) integrates with Visual Studio Ultimate 2013, Visual Studio Premium 2013, and Visual Studio Professional 2013. Any tools and programming languages that run in Visual Studio 2013 Shell (Integrated) will run together with Visual Studio if they are installed on the same machine. By using Visual Studio 2013 Shell (Integrated), you don't have to make Visual Studio a prerequisite on the machines you deploy to. These binaries require the Visual Studio 2013 Shell (Isolated) Redistributable Package.

      This download contains the redistributable run-time binaries that you can distribute with your Visual Studio tools and programming languages. To develop and test Visual Studio tools and programming languages, download the Visual Studio 2013 SDK.
