Big changes to MFC in XP?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I wanted to learn the MFC so I chose a book called "Programming Windows With MFC" (ISBN: 1572316950). Its last publishing was in 1999 and it said it covered upto win2k. Im running Windows XP and I also wanted to program for it too. Is there a big difference between the win2k MFC and the XP MFC? Sorry if my question is stupid, im a n00b at MFC

MFC 6.0 was written in ''98 and hasn''t changed since. One of the annoying aspects of it is that it sometimes doesn''t support Win2k+ because it''s so old and things have changed.

What''s different from MFC 6.0 is MFC 7.0 included with VS.NET. However, I''ve never actually seen it.

There''s no such thing as "MFC for 2k" or "MFC for XP" anyway. MFC is for Win32, at least its 6th version.
