This may have changed since I bought my version (Professional), but it used to be that you weren''t allowed to distribute executables made with the "Standard" edition. It actually encoded data into your .exe files that basically informed anyone who cared to look that they were created with the Standard edition and couldn''t be redistributed. In fact, if I remember correctly, "Standard" used to be called "Learning" edition...

Just recently I downloaded a person''s demo (from a link someone posted here, I think), and when I ran it, the first thing it showed was a little message box that said something along the lines of "Visual C++ Standard Edition: This executable cannot be redistributed; it is for learning purposes only.". It still ran okay though, of course.

Well, boys and girls, if it were upto Uncle Freedom (myself), then I would suggest the Visual C++ Enterprise Edition. So what if you loose all your money?? I mean as we all know, programming is more interesting than girls, clothes, or food! Hence, what better to get than VC++ Enterprise!?

With the left over money, you could all praise me, Captain Freedom! Maybe buy a snicker or two, and a video to do the freedom DANCE!!

More good advice...
FREEEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDDDOMMMM!!!!

It''s fine to release executables with version 6 of VC++. That limitation was just in older versions .

A profiler helps you find speed bottlenecks in your code -- it doesn''t optimize it though (the compiler does that).
