I remembered asking about DevC++ If I could compile for other platforms if I didn't use windows APIs or procs that is to be called by the system (windows), and people said, no - it's a windows compiler.

    It is a Windows compiler. What Fitlike meant was if you're doing graphical/Win32 programming, download the SDK.

    Probably two important links for anyone wondering about VC++ 2005
    Win32 in Express http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/ex...alc/usingpsdk/
    Edition Comparison http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hs24szh9.aspx

    I'm now convinced after doing some research about 2005 and owning my own copy that it is a ploy to sell Windows Vista and add VB-like qualities to C++ and yet still claim to be C++.

    MS be damned.
