Microsoft has rejected implementing C99 or C11, except for a small number of
features shared with C++11. It would be trivial to support most of C99 and
C11, because huge chunks of the underlying compiler and run-time are
licensed from outside vendors, and I know for a fact that some of those
vendors have leading implementations of C99 and C11. Microsoft just really
hates C.

To use a version of C that's not 20 years old one has to use some compiler
other than MSVC.
