    Mircrsoft Visual 6.0

    I have a new programming C++ book, and in the back it has the instilation disc for Microsoft Visual 6.0.

    I need your advice here!!!

    Should I install it or ditch it and keep using DevC++ and MSVBeta 2 2005 instead? Please help! Is 6.0 any better than any of these?

    I think you shouldnt switch - the compiler in MSVC6 is outdated in comparison.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    I agree with laserLight, MVC++ 6 is outdated, i use to use it, and now i have MVC++ .NET 2003 and i would have to say its a lot better, and im not sure about this but i think some of the libraries are outdated on MVC++ 6
