    VC++.NET & Win32API & OpenGL

    I'm thinking of getting VC++.NET, a i want to ask a question, do Win32API code for VC++ 6 and OpenGL code work with VC++.NET without modifications? and if so, is .NET runtime required for running VC++.NET compiled binaries?

    EDIT: I almost forgot, I use MFC too, so are there any changes? or my already written code will compile?
    The reason I'm asking is that my brother wants to buy it, and I may pay a part of the price so we both can use it :/

    VC++.NET is backwards compatible with VC6 etc, so no worries there. However, I don't think the reverse is true - once you have loaded a VC6 project into .NET, you can no longer work on it in VC6.

    .NET runtime is not required for pure Visual C++ applications, or MFC applications, only web-enabled applications that use the .net framework, and you know when you are using this as you have to define it in your code.

    MFC has more functions, but the older functions are still there.

    thx for the info
    I actually got it a few hours ago, everything works well, but I couldn't figure out how to add libraries to the linker, in VC++ I used to go to project settings but I couldn't find something similar here.
    Another question, how can I start an MFC project without adding like 10 files to it? I want an empty MFC project.
    Man the new IDE rox!
    thanks again

    Solution Explorer
    Right click your project
    Click "properties"
    Click "linker"
    Click "input"
    Type something into the "Additional dependencies" box.

    For an empty MFC project;

    "New project" from start page
    "Win32 Project"
    "Application settings"
    Tick "Empty project" and click "Finished".
    Then ask for MFC support by editing project options.

    sorry for this, but looks like I don't have such options!
    check out the screenshot.
    could it be a different version of vc++?

    just figured out that i should have clicked on the project name, I found the dialog you mentioned, but when i click on input I don't get anything to the right, in fact nothing changes the right side of the dialog, it's always empty
    any ideas?

    Unfortunately, that is something that I have never come across - there has always been a listing in that box. Which VS.net are you using? I'm using the 2003 one here (Visual C++ 7.1).

    I guess it's older that 2003, I'll tell my brother to get the most recent version.
    I still have no idea how he managed to get an older version
    thanks anyway

    The only way I can think of getting an older version is by either buying it second hand, or by downloading it from some site.

    most probably he got them second hand, the installation set didn't look like something downloaded off the net.
