    VC++6 and ServicePack6 ?

    I recently downloaded and installed Microsoft's service pack 6 for visual Studio 6.
    My Visual Basic is showing that it is installed (ie when it loads up, under the help menu), but Visual C++ is looking the same. Has anyone had this problem or does VC++ just act differently? I really don't want to reinstall it, but . . .

    VC++ 6.0 does not look any different after installing the service pack. The service packs affected the libaries and header files, not the IDE look.

    the best service pack you can apply to vc6 is the one labelled "Uninstall VC6".

    Really it's a terrible compiler (even microsoft admit that) and you can get the shiny new version for free. (see my sig)

    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?
