Does anyone know if there is a free version of MSVC like an older version that is now free? I was gonna buy it until I saw it costs like 400 dollars. Why is it so much more expensive than a video game? Oh man almost every tutorial I find use MS VC++. [snapback]20825[/snapback]
You can use the free Visual C++ 2003 Toolkit, available from MS. Combine that with something like Code::Blocks IDE (I think that's what it's called anyway, I have VS2003 on student license from uni so I've never tried it) and you have a full development environment. Obviously a few things will be different, but will still work.
