Hi, ok since there is so many different links to so many different versions of everything, I am making this post to sort out whats the best software ok.
What version of Visual C++ is the best one to have? There is like, Visual C++ 6, 2004, 2005, 2006, express editions, just too many.
Whats the best version of Visual Basic, sorry i dont know if im allowed to ask that here.
Also, for 2D graphics, i think OpenGL is the best isnt it? Where can i download the full version of it? Because the one from NeHe doesnt contain windows.h which you need to use for his tutorials.
Also, for networking, what software do i need for that? Or can the normal versions of Visual C++ contain all the stuff in it already?
Please let me know about this as my version of Visual C++ runs out in a couple of weeks and I would be lost without it and i cannot afford to pay for it lol.
