    MSVC++ Setup?

    Is there anything special I need to set for the compiler to work correctly? I always hear people saying that someone needs to setup the compiler a certain way. Oh and it's the Intro version. Thanks.

    Setting up visual c++ you should just be able to
    follow the gui promts but to be able to run it
    off the command line with cl you have to follow the
    directions and modify autoexec.bat

    You don't need to set up anything. Don't mess up your computer. You are using Microsoft, not Linux.

    If you want to write a program than you have to open a workspace. Try a Win32 console. A hello world application. Than write your C program in that workspace.

    Another thing that you can do is open a plain C++ file than write your program. When you build the program, it will create a workspace.

    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    Witch_King is right. This isn't some Linux freeware stuff.
    To use the tools that come with it, just insert the first
    CD, follow the installation instructions and start coding.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    In the beginning VC++6 does seem confusing. Once you learn to use a win32 console application and you figure out in which file in that workspace to write your programs, it becomes much clearer. It takes experience but the good thing is that Microsoft upgrades their compilers every 3 years or so and most of what you learned about the compilers GUI features carry over into the next version. VS.NET has all VC++6's features plus many additional features.
