[Question] IDEs, source of much confusion

Recommended Posts

Yet again folks, the humble servant appeals to the kind sides of your natures, in hopes that you will answer a simple question for him [smile] Righto, I'm downright confused by all these Microsoft products floating around at this point. So, to start this off, my current situation.. I am, at this point, developing with a copy of Visual C++ 6.0, and will be needing to use some of the more, ahh, supposably badly supported features of it's compiler, that is, lots of templates (everyone loves experiments, right?). Now, I want to pick up, what is it, Visual C++ 7.0? However, due to the nature of Microsofts naming system (wtf? For a multi-billion dollar company, they could have a bit nicer system, you'd think, for the uninformed...), I have utterly no idea exactly which name this product goes buy, nor how I could go about purchasing it? Which leaves me in lurch. And, naturally, I would like to get out of lurch. Please note that templates are not the only motive for me wanting to get a copy of VC 7, I'm also not sure whether my version is, well, completely legal, and would thus like to procure something that is legal for sure, as I dislike the thought of stolen goods [smile] If someone would, out of the kindness of their hearts, tell me what the name of the product I should be looking for is, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

What do you mean "I'm not sure..."? Sounds to me like you pirated the copy.

Thanks very much, I appreciate it!

[EDIT] Is it just me, or is it always the anonymous posters who accuse people of things? If someone wishes to accuse me of piracy, come out and say it, if you dare.. But I will have it known that I recieved this from a friend, I have no idea where it came from.
