    VC++.NET allows you to do anything you could do in VC++6.0. Essentially, the language is at your disposal. The .NET version does allow you to use M$ managed code tags and a few other "enhancements" they made to C++, but thats optional.

    Second that. You can compile any C++ code you compiled with other versions of VC in VC.NET. You can use managed C++, then you get a managed assembly. If you don't use managed C++ but only "pure" C++, you get a normal executable.

    You can btw. go very deep into the bowels of your computer using C#, too. It has non-garbage collected arrays, pointers and stuff. It's just that no-one wants to use that.
    There is always a best tool for a job and people that chose C# to be the best tool don't have jobs requiring tinkering with internals too much

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
