Greetings, I was wondering is there any free C++ for win32, that does not require any external utilities and is Microsoft .LIB compatible? Why am I saying this? Borland C++ compiler uses a different stnadnard of libraries (.lib) and will not compile with DirectX. In Borland C++ Builder there was a conversion utility but that is not what I am aiming for. GCC requires "Cygwin". I do NOT WANT CYGWIN (I'm not sure about MINIGW). I have seen intel compiler in an company and you could start it just like that. And it was Micro$oft .LIB compilant - no conversions what-so-ever. I allready have the free compiler from Micro$oft which you get from the platform SDK. I would like an alternative, for backup - C++ standard checkup. I would like to compile WIN32 DirectX projects from command line. A lib compiler is also required. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

Thank you, but I allready have the Platform SDK Compiler and also the one year free express edition of Visual C++ 2005.

I am seeking for a free alternative.

Express Editions are free permanently, but are only downloadable for one year from the date they were made available.
