    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    It doesn't really add up too bad unless you decide to install MSDN to your drive... which is good, but space consuming.

    There are four program disks plus two for the msdn, which
    must be outdated as this is written. But of course on those
    four disks (talking Enterprise Ed., btw) you have VB, J++ and
    a bunch of other stuff you may or may not want to install. I
    forget the actual disk space my installation used, and I don't
    use version 6 anymore, but I think it's in the neighborhood of
    half a gig, if my memory serves me. That half a gig included VB,
    J++, Fox Pro and MSDN.
    No. Wait. Don't hang up!

    This is America calling!

    MS VC++ 6.0 Pro comes on a single cd, with a pair of cd's with the documentation, (MSDN). It doesn't have a load of the stuff rick mentioned, but then, you don't say what version your wanting.
