    Question Help: Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express Editon

    Hello, this may sound like a very simple question but I cannot get my head around it and I've been searching for ages to try and find a solution.

    I'm fairly new to programming in C++, at uni I use emacs on unix, and at home on windows I have been using C-free, but it has ran out. So I have downloaded Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express Editon, and I have been trying to write basic code in there, but It comes up with errors pretty much on every line.

    Am I using completing the wrong kind of program that will let me write in c++ and compile it?

    I have also tried various other programs, and I get stuck on how to compile a program or to even write a program without any errors.

    any feedback would be greatly appriciated.

    Karla.

    p.s I have also downloaded Visual C++ Express Editon 2005 and still not having any luck with getting code to work.

    Visual Basic is for programming in Visual Basic, not C++. What specific trouble are you having with VC++?

    >>Visual Basic<<

    This isn't a board for visual basic programming; the boards here provide a resource for C and C++ and the use of those languages in platform specific contexts.

    >>Visual C++ Express<<

    This is a C++ compiler but is also okay for c89 code; it doesn't have much support for c99, though.

    >>use emacs on unix<<

    There is a windows version of emacs, too:

    http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/windows/ntemacs.html

    Whichever ide/compiler you decide to use, you should ideally provide the problematic code and whatever errors or warnings you are getting - if you get lots of multiple errors or warnings that are virtually the same then posting a subset of these is sufficient.

    Well I've just got visual c++ to compile a program but it will pop up in command prompt for a split second and then disappears again, and I have no idea why it is doing that.
