    Difference between Visual studio 2005 command prompt and the regular one

    Hi

    I tried to run my program with visual studio command prompt 2005 and the regular one.
    There was no difference.

    So my question is: What's the difference between the two?

    The "Visual Studio 2005" command prompt is just the same command prompt as you get elsewhere as far as the command prompt itself goes. It has a different setup with regards to environment variables (for example the PATH variable will have a path to the compiler in it).

    If you have any initiative whatsoever, the same should be true of your regular command prompt too.
