So I'm having to make the move from VS 6.0 but VS .net is too expensive for me so I'm thinking of picking up VC++ .net 2003. But apparently the compiler is not optimized? So that means that all my graphic apps that I write will also be slow? Can anyone shed any light on this issue and alternatives. I can buy VS .net through school but I don't think that allows me to sell any applications I make and probably will put up a big ol' message every time my program is run saying that it was built with an academic version. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. ~Wave

I believe you can download the "toolkit" from Microsoft for free, including the fully-optimizing compiler (the one that ships with Pro Ed).

EDIT:

Microsoft C/C++ Optimizing Compiler and Linker. These are the same compiler and linker that ship with Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional!

My big reason for switching over to .net is so that I can open the damned solution files that come with the dx9 sdk. I wish there was a way around that. Have you worked with dx9 and VS 6.0? Thank you for the help.
