    What exactly do you mean by "Visual C++"?
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Look up a C++ Reference and learn How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

    Well, unless you mean managed C++ or some other special brand, there is nothing you need to convert C++ to compile in Microsoft's compiler (unless they are non-standard conforming in some area).

    What exactly are you trying to do? Are you simply trying to learn how to write Windows GUI applications?

    Edit: Ah, beat again.

    laserlight, from Wikipedia:
    Microsoft Visual C++ (often abbreviated as MSVC) is a commercial integrated development environment (IDE) product engineered by Microsoft for the C, C++, and C++/CLI programming languages. It has tools for developing and debugging C++ code, especially code written for the Microsoft Windows API, the DirectX API, and the Microsoft .NET Framework.
    I specifally want to write Visual C++ for Excel.

    Right. So, as you quoted, visual C++ is not something you can write. You can write C, or C++, or C++/CLI, and the program Visual C++ will be able to compile it.

    In short, Visual C++ is not a language exactly.

    This seems a bit reversed from the original title of your thread. I mean if you have a standard C++ application (i.e. a console application) it should compile just fine in Visual C++. However Microsoft does have a lot of little (and not so little) interfaces and add ons. Here's what I got in 5 seconds from Google.

    How to automate Excel from C++ without using MFC or #import

    I'm sure there is a lot more on it if you look around a bit. I don't however see any need for a conversion tool to do what you want though.

    Why use C++ to automate Excel when you can probably do it far quicker and with less fuss in VBA?
