    Unhappy VC++.net

    I have been using VC++6.0 for years and just upgraded to studio.net Enterprise 2003, Visual C++.net.

    After installing, I found the interface is quite different from the VC6. A lot of things new! For learning, I searched the Net, a great number of tutorial of the VC++.net.

    You are experienced VC++.net users, might I share your experiences to make a sooner access?

    Try using both for different purposes. IE I might use VC++.net for an actual game, but VC6 for a level editor written with MFC.

    why? anything vc6 can do vs.net can do and without vc6's crap buggy compiler.

    Yumin, exactly what are you looking for? If you've used vc6, vs.net should be pretty familiar.

    If you program in C++, you need Boost. You should also know how to use the Standard Library (STL). Want to make games? After reading this, I don't like WxWidgets anymore. Want to add some scripting to your App?

    the only reasons to not bin vc6 after getting a sniff of vc.NET is lack of familiarity or having code that is so specific to vc6 that it won't work using any other compiler (it is apparently possible, Sun had some Java runtimes that would only build using specific builds of vc6 (so not just any vc6, but only highly specific patch levels). IMO that's poor coding on their part, and I think they've now made an effort to remove such dependencies.
    For a while it may take a bit longer to get things done while you're getting used to the new interface, that's it.
