from the MSDN:

Visual FoxPro
Microsoft Visual FoxPro database development system is a powerful tool for quickly creating high-performance desktop, rich client, distributed client, client/server, and Web database applications. Employ its powerful data engine to manage large volumes of data, its object-oriented programming to reuse components across applications, its XML Web services features for distributed applications, and its built-in XML support to quickly manipulate data.


Introducing Visual InterDev
Microsoft® Visual InterDev™ is a Web development tool designed for programmers who want to create:

Data-driven Web applications using a data source supported by ODBC or OLE DB, such as the database management systems from Microsoft.

Broad-reach Web pages using HTML and script in Web applications that take advantage of the latest advances in browser technology, such as Microsoft® Internet Explorer 4.0, Dynamic HTML and multimedia features.

Robust development environment with a Scripting Object Model, design-time controls (DTCs), and an extensible toolbox for rapid design, testing, and debugging of your pages.

Web teams that can develop pages in isolation and maintain ready access to a master version, or teams that include nonprogrammers who work on the master version through Microsoft® FrontPage®.

Integrated solutions that can include applets or components created in Microsoft® Visual Basic®, Visual C++®, Visual J++™, and Visual FoxPro®.


try http://msdn.microsoft.com for alot of info on VC++

also, it helps to try and make sample projects with VC++ so you can see all the things that are possible, try making an MFC application, its a lil weird at first, but once you get the gist of it it''s really neat (least i think so)

for a kinda neat tutorial go here:

and go to the scribble tutorial, it shows you how to create a basic MFC app that has some functionality, but isnt too complex.
