    Whats the deal with VC++ express ed. 2005?

    It doesn't include a windows.h header file.

    You cant use using namespace std;

    main is _tmain

    Cant use, getch()(conio.h) though i think this might be a Borland header file.

    Lots of other differences.

    This is when creating a win32 console app, not .NET app.

    ?

    Aint tried it but...

    windows.h is part of the PlatformSDK which can be dowlnoaded from Microsoft

    conio.h is non standard and you can do anything that's part of that header with either standard C++ or an API

    _tmain was available in other versions as part of tchar.h. I magine you can still use main if you want though...

    using namespace std is allowed by the standard and should be available...maybe a bug in the beta version???
