Introductory VC++

Recommended Posts

I''m using the Introductory version of VC++ 6.0 that came with Tricks and was wondering if this will be enough to program a game with? I really don''t know much about compiler features, but my paranoid concern is that certain errors will appear in the Introductory version that wouldn''t in another version. Am I being a paranoid phreak, or are the Pro and Standard editions substantially different/better?

Hell, Im sitting here making a 3d engine with Intro VC++, IMO, its perfectly acceptable for the early stages of development. But you cant distribute any executables which is a bit crap. Im buying Student edition of VC++ soon, but Intro has lasted me since January.

Introductory = is the same as standard except that there''s a msgbox in the runtime that tells you not do distribute your program.
Standard = has no profiling tool, no optimization, but you can distribute your programs build with this version.
Proffesional = has profiling tool, optimization, database stuff (I think).
Enterprise = top of the bill (or should I say Bill? )
