    Visual Studio .Net Question

    Im planning to upgrade Visual Studio 6.0 to .net. Would there be a major difference between C++ 6.0 and C++ .net .. Coz i have made some programs with C++ 6.0 and im worrying that i may need to modify some parts of my codings just to make it run in .net.

    And im wondering also, is VisualStudio.net one program? Coz when i went to this website(pscode.com) .net has its own category( This site confused me a lot ). Or is it like Visual Studio 6.0? which has VB, Visual C++ ....

    With VisualStudio.NET you can still compile standard C++ code - the only difference as far as I can see (kepping in mind that I have only worked much with C# in VS.NET) is that you have the option of also using the libraries that are unique to .NET.

    I'm not sure if it forces your compiled program to be a .NET program - but I would be surprized if there wasn't a feature to allow you to compile to a standard executable.

    Not really. C# is a .NET-specific language, but if you have questions about C++.NET, this is still the place to post them.

    Unmanaged C++ to Managed C++ Difficulties

    Though apparently it goes both ways...

    You can create "normal" c++ just as you can in VC6. I use VC.NET and I have never bothered with the "managed-NET" type of coding.

    On the plus side you get a better IDE, and better standard compliance (VC++.NET 2003 beong the best in this regard)

    Benefits from switching includes C89, C99 and Standard C++ (finally), and C++.NET.
