    but Since I am supposed to work on Linux..I am having compatibilty issues.
    Then why not compile it on Linux?
    You can still use VC++ as the editor if you want, but you need to compile & test it on Linux.

    Make sure you create a Win32 Console Application and check the Empty Project box under Application Settings in the wizard. Then you can write standard C++ code and compile it and assuming you keep to standard code it will work on Linux as well.
