I want to buy a a new compiler/IDE but i''m not shure which one to choose. I was thinking of buying VC++ 6.0 with student licens, but first I need to know a few things. What happends when I''m not a student anymore? Can''t I use VC++ anymore and sell my programs? Is there any newer IDE like VC++ 7.0? What is VC++.net? Thanks for your help!

if you buy Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus (not a bad book but not perfect) you get a free copy of MS Visual C++.
cheap way to get a look at the IDE.

Buy the Academic version of Visual Studio.NET.

You can continue to use VS.NET after you leave school, and sell your programs.

VC++7.0 == VC++.NET

I''m not sure if you can buy an academic version. When I tried to, m$ told me that that version is only for academical institutions, such as schools...

I''ve ordered the Standard edition of VC++.NET. It is cheap, but it misses program optimization, which is not very appropriate for releasing commercial programs... or maybe it is if you are creating small games.

I think you owe it to yourself to try Dev-C++ (link in signature). Not only is it completely free, it is comparable to VC++ in looks and features. I know that there are some people who can''t stand Dev-C++, because they say it is not as good, or it is too buggy, etc, but before you spend money for Visual C++, you should at least give the free download a shot. You just might like it (I did!).

This is quite simply not true. I''m not discussing this with you - I am telling you.

Perosonally, if I owned a company, and people put $''s in the name when they typed it, I wouldn''t be that upset (quite the opposite really).

When I bought the acedemic version of Visual C++ 5, I had to proved proof that I was a student and actively enrolled.
