The only legal version you can download is the Visual Studio Express 2005 Beta. That and the VC Toolkit, which is the compiler only.


no.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/vctoolkit2003/


I mentioned that [smile]

The one thing I don't like about DevC++ for beginners is that the compiler errors (something which beginners will see a lot of) are fairly cryptic. That and the debugger is horrific.


Tom, I recommend you try both the VS Express Beta and DevC++ just to see which one you like. Don't expect immediate results, C++ is a hard language to learn for beginners with no programming experience.

where can i download microsoft visual c++.


It's not free software, you have to pay for it. Also bear in mind that this forum has a strict no piracy policy. Asking for pirated software is likely to get you banned very quickly.

I'd imagine that the beta license has a few limitations in how you can use it, although I'd imagine that if you're just trying it out and learning the basics of C++ you'd be fine. However it is a beta, so it may not be perfect...

The standard edition of Visual C isn't usually too expensive, and if you're a student you may be able to get some fairly good discounts.

EDIT: also, please make your thread titles a bit more meaningful.

Then you'll have to make do with one of the free alternatives, such as Dev-C++ or the betas.

The education version is about 75 euros from amazon.fr
(I couldn't find a spanish version of amazon)

We don't care. We hate pirated software. Use free alternatives or shell out the money. Dev-C++ is a very good IDE with compiler. If you don't like it, why not give up now right away? People are helping you in 3 threads, and all you do is complain about no can't do, I have no idea and I have no money.

Read the links people posted. I bet you only looked at the for beginners section for 30 seconds and then skipped to the forums.

Oh! I wish I earned 10 euros a week! I earn 0 Czk a month! (Yes, that's zero - because of high internet bill [smile]).

Good. What's the name of the book?

I don't see MSVC++'s error messages less cryptyc than MinGW's ones. Both of them complain on error 10 lines below the actual one (especially if you forget the '}' [smile]).
