    hi about the new version of MVC++ 2005, if I installed dose this mean I will not be able to use the old version.

    MVC++2005 is free, so why it asks you after installing it, if you want to buy a version.

    thank you

    The free version is mostly a demonstration version of the full product, so it's not surprising you're getting some ads for that full product.
    It also (check the website) is free for a limited time only, the product is an introductory offer.

    And beware that AFAIK you're limited to writing .NET applications only, no Win32 SDK.

    I have 2005 beta 2 and Miscrosoft Visual C++.net 2003. Although the 2005 is newer, I use 2003 for large projects as it understands ALL windows commands better than 2005 dispite me having downloaded the platform SDK for it

    Or rather you will need to install additional libraries and stuff to get Win32 SDK functionality, see the documentation.

    There are other free, open source, modern C++ compilers. Pick one and download it for free. However, being used to VC++6.0, I found one(dev c++) to be a pain in the but to setup and use.

    If you are at all serious about windows development, you'll be downloadsing the includes, libs and the rest of the Platform SDK quite regulary anyway, so dont let that put you off

    if you're at all serious you're not using VC2 and looking at a free alternative, you're using VS2005 or BDS2006 already and aren't cheap about paying for it

    And no, I'm not THAT serious about it at the moment, I'm still using older products for financial reasons and because for me my professional focus is on Java right now.

    You are wrong on all three statements. There are no ads in VC++ Express. At least none I've ever seen and I use it daily.

    Once you download it, it is free for as long as you want. However, MS does state they only plan to make the download available for a year (like 10 months left now)

    You are not limited to .net. With just the VC++ express you can do .net (managed c++ / windows forms) or you can do console c++ programming. With another free download of the platform SDK, you can also do windows api programming.

    The only serious limitation to the IDE is that it doesn't have a resource editor, however that's true of most of the other free c++ ide's as well.

    To the original poster, yes you can run the new one and the old one, though I am not sure why you'd want to, except for maybe using the resource editor on the old.

    And don't let the name confuse you -- it works with VC++ 6.0 as well as all versions of .NET, and on Windows XP pro as well as server 2003.

    I never said there were ads in it, only that I'd understand them if they were
    I also don't say you have to pay after a while, only that Microsoft says that it won't always be free...

    And I corrected the last, which still holds if you don't install the platform SDK...
