I have the intro version of VC 6.0 and I was looking to upgrade to the student version (I am a college student) Anyways I heard that I can get this compiler for around $100. Is that right? Also where do i go to purchase this? Thanks
Yes you can get VC++ Professional version for $100. I got mine at the campus bookstore, which is probably the best place to get it. There is also a standard version which you can get for $50, but it has less features. You can look on Microsofts site to get specs, I think they also have the student pricing there also.
