Microsoft has made the command line toolkit for Visual C++ available for a free download. You can use the toolkit to build applications and redistribute them if you want.

Thanks for the information and link, XSquared.
These are the same compiler and linker that ship with Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional!...including the Standard Template LibraryThat's different from those available with the sdk/.NET downloads.
