    Question MS Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect - ANSI C++ ?

    Is the C++ complier in VS .NET Enterprise Architect ANSI C++? I'm looking into programming games but I first need to learn the basics. I was told to make sure my C++ complier was "Ansi C++" (not exactly sure what that is, if someone could explain please) but I wasnt sure if it is. Thanks

    I'm not sure if there is an ANSI C++, but there is an ANSI C standard. Yes MSVC++7 is a good C++ compiler. It meets most of the C++ standard requirements. It's better than VC++6.

    But this is Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect (or Visual C++ Net for short) not MSVC++ 7 unless they are the same thing???

    1. Visual C++ is NOT short for Visual Studio, Visual Studio has other componants, ie. Visual BASIC, Visual Interdev etc.

    2. Visual C++ is part of the Microsoft Visual Studio

    3. MSVC++ stands for MicroSoft Visual C++

    [EDIT]
    4. Version 7.0 of Visual Studio is the .NET version

    Yes I do know that (#1-3)

    VC++ 7.0 = VC++ .Net? Okay, that's all I wanted to know. Thanks a lot. ^^

    VC++7 is the unmanaged c++ compiler that is part of the VS.Net package. There is also a managed C++ compiler that targets the framework. I forget what it is called, but I believe that the VB.Net and C# complers are called vbc.exe and csc.exe.

    Yes it meets the standard for the most part, it's the best Microsoft C++ compiler yet.

    Yes, VS.NET is a great tool but you'll need the .NET framework to run applications written in VS.NET. Can't you run C/C++ apps written in MSVC++ that do not have Windows Libs in a UNIX environment?

    Use Java for cross platform work or else a GUI emulator such as QT.
