    Compiler

    I need a compiler that compiles MFC applications.

    I can't download Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition, because it needs Service Pack 2, and I can't download Service Pack 2 because Windows Update doesn't work (the loading just never ends).

    I recall reading that there were issues with a recent iexplore update on winxp-sp1 systems, for which a patch to fix the buggy patch has been released - check out microsoft's site and install this updated patch and see if this helps.

    I'm moving this thread to tech.

    edit:

    >>I need a compiler that compiles MFC applications.<<

    The express editions don't permit use of mfc; the standard edition is the minimum required. If you are still at school or are a student (full or part-time) you may be eligible for a substantial student discount - contact your school/college and/or microsoft to get more information.

    Isn't there any free compiler that supports MFC?
    Aren't there any libraries for Mingw that let you use MFC?

    I am not good at converting MFC to Win32, so I need a compiler to compile MFC applications.

    You have to use the commercial versions of Microsoft Visual Studio.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”

    I think it shouldn't be that hard to make Windows update working. You can get help from MS forum.

    How about ordering a CD of Service Pack 2?

    I've ordered one before and I didn't have to pay for it or the shipping. I'd imagine its the same way still.
