    Hello

    I tried to search about it in the web but no luck so here i am putting it here.

    So which is better "Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate" or "C++ Builder XE"?

    if you want to spend $10,000USD, visual studio ultimate is the way to go for windows development. the express series of tools are more than adequate for most tasks, and they're free.

    Search for "ResEdit" and "CodeBlocks". Those two combined make a hell of an IDE!

    And guess what: Both are free!
