    Visual Basic C++

    i bought a book called

    Sams teach yourself C++ in 21 days

    and when i bought it it came with 2 compilers dev c++ which i already got and it also came with Microsoft Visual Basic C++

    i tried to use visual basic , but it was way too hard it had all the sub folders and thingys which i dont even know what they are used for , and i couldnt even figure out how to compile a simple program

    Never heard of that, although Microsoft seems to be inventing a language on a monthly basis these days .

    LoL...But seriously, are you sure it isn't just "Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0"? I'm pretty sure Microsoft Visual Basic C++ doesn't exist, because that would involve combining two languages together, which Microsoft does not have the intelligence to do. Plus C++ and Visual Basic would be basically VB anyways...VB is almost like a GUI C++ programming environment.

    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Yes, apart from it not using C++.

    yes, Dev C++ maybe easier to use at the moment, but (like me) when you start to learn new and advanced things (mabe not that advanced...) Dev C++ becomes useless in a sense. If you ever want to download code, it would usually be in the form of a "workspace" for C++ which cannot be used in Dev C++. It can be frustrating. Just look in the help section of it or look on the internet for tutorials on how to use Microsoft Visual C++. This happned to me. I bought Microsoft Visual C++ becuase i found how crap Dev C++ was and I would highly recommend it. Especially if you decide to start to learn anything like how to program in Windows or DirectX.

    Anybody have an comments for me?

    if you are a beginner at the moment, you would definately be programing in "windows console" which looks like a dos program. Direct X is what most games are written in - its for graphics.

    Please help this dummy..... I downloaded two compilers - Borland 5.5 and Bloodshed 4.0 both C++. I need someone please to guide me step by step by step, (If you would be kind enough to), so I can begin programming in C++. I need help from the point of turning on my computer.

    I am to the point of paying someone to assist me.
    Thanks
