    I know that this question is not related to C programming but still wnat to know.

    What is the difference between microsoft visual studio 2005 and 2008? And does anything like visual studio 2003 exists? If yes what is the difference among them? From where can I download visual studio 2003?

    I wish you had asked this a few weeks ago. I had a boxed copy and needed to get rid of it, but no one I knew was interested, and no one on Craigslist was really serious. So... I threw it out.

    If your schools particpiates in MSDN's Academic Alliance - you can get copies of VS through MSDN. Otherwise you'll need to buy a copy second-hand or pay to download it.

    The main differences between them are what you'd expect between new version of any software - slight redesigns, new features, etc... I believe they have also dropped support for certain 'outdated' windowing libraries. MFC, was it?

    Nah, I don't think they would drop support for MFC.

    They haven't dropped support for MFC. It's alive and being developed again.
    As for C support, I don't know if they've changed anything at all since a long time.
    But I do know that there was a major compiler upgrade for C++ between 2005 and 2008.
    2008 was mostly just the new MFC version (in a long time).
    No news of any C improvements for 2010 either. This doesn't surprise me.
    But new C++ features will be abound in lots.

    You can't. VC++ 2003 doesn't have an 'express' version. They only started making 'express' versions in 2005 & 2008.
    Why would you want an older version anyways? Why not get the latest & greatest version?

    My friend was asking for it that's why i asked, otherwise I'm using and prefer 2005. By the way what is an 'express' edition? How can I know which tpye of visual studio 2005 am I using?

    Express is a free edition available for download. It lacks some things - mainly MFC and tools useful for companies such as source server, profiler, code analyzer, among other things.
    Did you download it from Microsoft's site? Then you probably know if it's Express edition since it's the only edition available free.
    Did you download it from DreamSpark? Then you got the Professional edition (only for students). Otherwise, if you bought it, then you should know which edition you bought.
