    Post Visual Studio Vs. CodeWarrior

    Hi,

    I have a choice of either purchasing Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 6.0 or Metrowerks CodeWarrior V.8.0. My question here is which software is better, more powerful, etc..?

    Thanks

    i think that MS Visual Studio is THE best. It has LOTS of nice options, easy to use once you play around a bit, and it's microsoft so it has to be good (some might say not though). if you ask me it the best and you should buy it

    There was this thinker that once said when presented with two choices, always choose the third... think about it

    If you can shell enough to buy VC, my advise is for you to buy Borland C++ Builder 5 or 6 and forget about those other 2.

    And don't trust anyone that says to you Microsoft stuff is the best there is. They are living under a rock.

    I've used Borland C++ Builder 5 and VC++ 6 and I prefer MSVC++ hands down. **crawls back under his rock**

    For msvc++ 6.0 introductory edition, does anyone know how to get red of that message that comes up every time you try to run a program made with that?

    What are you on about with all your third way nonsense? Don't you know Borland is the work of the Devil?

    If I remember correctly you can edit the exe that is produced by MSVC. I don't know the exact details, but if your dishonesty stretches this far, you may as well seek out a non-intro version on the internet or dodgy retailer.

    I use MSVC++ 6 Ent Ed.........I also fool with Codewarrior and Devc++......but my main fooling around always settles around VC....


    For msvc++ 6.0 introductory edition, does anyone know how to get red of that message that comes up every time you try to run a program made with that?
    Yup....foolproof method I am willing to share.......walk into your nearest PC world (or regional equivelant!).....slap £75 (or regional equivelant!) on the counter and repeat these words...

    "I would like to buy the most recent version of Visual C++ Standard Edition please......."

    To my knowledge this method rarely fails.....

    as much as i hate ms, i really like msvc. i would never pay for it understand (mine came free wth a book), but i like the way the debugger works, the auto-complete is handy, and the error reports make sense to me as a newbie.

    the bad: i don't like the way it saves with all those extra files along with the source, not all of which could ever fit on a floppy. also, it requires more than 16mb, which is more than our backup computer i have to use the wife needs the main computer

    Two things wrong with that:
    1. I ain't got that much money
    2. Mine came free from a book, so I don't want to do this style, any other methods?
