    Have you tried re-installing it?

    do you have VC++ 6.0's SP 5 or SP 6 installed? If not you can get it free from M$.

    SP 5 and SP 6 are compiler bug fixes and additions. If you don't have either of them then you should install it to correct a lot of compiler bugs.

    or better yet, ditch vc6 altogether. It's a terrible compiler. You can get a free version of microsoft visual studio 2005 from msdn.

    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?

    Service Pack ?

    Maybe a stupid Question, but does Service back 6 include the fixes from the previous service packs?

    it does. SP6 can be installed by itself without any previous patches having been applied

    It has more features, like an interface builder if you start getting into Windows programming. For console apps, there isn't very much difference.

    You can "put" it anywhere but once you do you must then install it.

    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.

    Where do you get the idea it's a terrible compiler? It's still very heavily used in commercial environments. It's probably the stablest compiler Microsoft ever came out with.

    Have you ever tried using any of the STL headers in VC++ 6.0? I had to write special header file wrappers for each VC++ 6.0 STL header with #pragma warning(disable:num) statements just so I could get it to compile cleanly. Sometimes you can't even re-enable the warnings after you include the header and you have to permanently live without those specific warnings. Yuk...

    Okay, I should have qualified my statement a little better. VC6 is a great compiler unless you are using templates or STL But that was a while ago -- gcc wasn't terribly good at it either, at the time.
