On the Express C++ page over at microsoft.com, it says I need to install a Microsoft SDK. So I found the latest release: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=0BAF2B35-C656-4969-ACE8-E4C0C0716ADB&displaylang=en But i'm not sure which executable to choose for my platform, can anyone help me? PSDK-amd64.exe 1.2 MB PSDK-ia64.exe 1.3 MB PSDK-x86.exe 1.2 MB I got a intel pentuim 4 processor, with a ATI video card and Windows XP Home Edition.

I won't bash DevC++, although I prefer Code::Blocks as my non Visual Studio IDE of choice, but Microsoft's Visual C++ 2005 Express edition is much better all around. Personal choice aside, there's no technical reason to not use VC++ Express which is factually better in every technical regard (IDE features, Compiler, Platform libs(not included but freely available)) and IMHO, better in every non-technical regard not to mention being the industry standard.

DevC++ is pretty good though, I used to use it years ago, although as I said I prefer Code::Blocks to DevC++ these days. Of course I don't touch either because Microsofts dev software is so much nicer.
