Okay, so I bought this fancy dancy new compiler, Visual C++.NET and I''m running it on Windows XP. But all I want to be able to do is compile something and have it be able to run on Windows 98. Everything I compile is built to run on Windows XP by default, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to build so that it can run on 98. I feel as though I have lost my mind. I know there is a simple answer, but where can I find it? Please help. I feel so helpless.

Did you remember to turn off managed extensions? I do not have the IDE so I cannot tell you where exactly you need to go to do this. Look around Project Settings.

Also, keep in mind that by default your applications are dynamically linked to the MSVC7 runtime, a set of DLLs that are not included with Windows 98. You can either set your project up to statically link to the libraries (making your executable significantly larger), or have people download the appropriate DLLs from Microsoft (as long as your project is built in Release mode, you can get the correct libraries free of charge).
