    The same place except you click on the one that says C++ and not the one that says Basic. www.microsoft.com/express/vc

    What exactly do you mean?
    Create a new project and away you go, writing code.
    Press F7 to compile.
    Press F5 (or Ctrl+F5) to run.

    All languages use a common IDE in Microsoft's newer IDE versions.
    (C++ and VB uses the same editor and interface.)

    What about that big blank rectangle in the middle of the screen? That's usually where I type when I'm in Visual Studio. (Note: you will need to create a new project, or open an existing one, to actually be allowed to type things.)

    I'm not sure, but you may have to create a new "console" project, or perhaps an empty one. Maybe the default project brings you to a GUI design of some sort?
