    Another question?

    The reason I was reinstalling Visual C++ was because very file I would save after I finished in C++ would save as a Bloodshed C++ file. Well, the reinstllation didn't change that. Does anyone know how I can change it back so files I save and files I open open in Visual C++ 6.0 not Bloodshed. I have already uninstalled Bloodshed but that didn't work.

    It sounds like you need to dis-associated the file types from Dev C++. If you open up any folder on your PC, then select Tools/Folder Options from the menu you can delete or change the file associations (cpp files etc).

    If I were to delete those file associations, would I need to reinstall Visual C++ 6.0 to get them back (Its already installed on my PC)?

    For Windows 2k you goto 'control panel' -> 'folder options' -> 'file types' and change what program the files open with. It is a very simple operation and requires no re-installation of files ro programs. Another alternative is to right click your CPP fiile and choose 'open with ...' and open with your favourite compiler
