Which WinXP IDE? .NET?

Recommended Posts

I just got a Laptop for christmas with XP. I have been programming DirectX/OpenGL in Win98 with Visual Studio 6. Time to start using my unicode macros! but! Should I just reinstall VS onto the XP machine...or should I (while im upgrading) go all out and buy VS 7 .NET? Are there compatability issues with VS6 or is it worth upgrading? Thanks Brian

There''s no reason not to. VS.NET will load all your VS6 projects no problem (though the reverse isn''t true - VS6 can''t load VS7 projects, but that seems obvious). Both VS6 and VS7 will work fine under XP (I''ve certainly had no problems with either).

If I had my way, I''d have all of you shot!
