    Hmmm, well there's: classes & all the wonderful OOP things that go with them; safer casting; function overloading; exceptions; references; single line comments; RTTI; stricter type safety; and probably a bunch of things that I'm too tired to remember right now.

    I've done a lot of commercial C++ development. One of my biggest complaints is the fact that so many developers don't "trust" templates, or the STL, and refuse to use them. Remember that C++ existed for many years before templates even existed.

    The standard template library is also now one of richest features of the C++ language. Proffesional game developers use it has their holy bible...

    The Visual Studio 2005 can be downloaded here, go down a bit (to the middle of the page and on the right) to where it says "Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition" and click on a language and it will then ask you to save a file vcsetup.exe to your computer. This is a small (3MB) installation program that, when run, will allow you to select from some components to download. If you've got the speed, then I'd suggest downloading the MSDN as well which will give you a 300+ MB download. Once downloaded, the components will be installed automatically by the installation program. You'll need to register it if you use it more than 30 days but that can be done for free.

    Its associated service pack (SP1) is also recommended for download, a direct link to the EXE is here.

    I used Visual Basic 6.0

    my error is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\LIB\uuid.lib : fatal error LNK1113

    not Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition

    Visual Basic 6.0 won't help you much in writing C++ code. Even if you were using Visual C++ 6.0, its out of date, and doesn't support the latest standard (So features that should be available are likely to be missing, or not work in the way that the standard requires them to)

    You really ought to get VC++ 2005, which is a modern compiler that conforms far more closely to the C++ standard

    Maybe, maybe not. You have provided very little information.

    My previous post gave you a link to where it could be downloaded from along with some instructions.
    "Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods."
