What is the difference between Visual C++ and another C++ compiler? Also, does Visual C++ and another kind of C++ compiler take the same code, or is it different in some way?

Different compilers may implement some different C++ features, e.g. MSVC++ 6.0 (no partial template specialisation), but most programs should be portable between compilers on the same platform without too many changes.

MSVC++ is a good compiler, but the new versions are expensive.

There are several good C++ compilers for free.

"good" C/C++ code compiles on every C++ compiler. the bigger difference is the inline assembly mode supported by the compilers. Visual C++/C++Builder/windows IntelC prefer the "standart" mode, while gcc (and thereby devcpp-mingw) and linux''s IntelC only compile the "gcc-inline-assembly".
