vs 6.0 or .NET

P: n/a
Hi everyone,

I have been programming for about half a year (c++) so I 'm still learning
and my programs are fairly simple. I'm using .NET , but I notice some
differences with visual studio 6.0, which is installed in my university. I
transfered my code (written in .NET) to the university and it couldn't
compile!
So I wonder, should I go for visual c++ 6.0 instead of .NET, or is it worth
to keep going with the new platform?

Thanks!

If your goal is to learn C++, and I presume it is since you are posting to a
C++ newsgroup, you should be using .NET. Its conformance to the C++ Standard
is much better than VC++ 6.0.

The C++ compiler in VS.NET has much better standards conformance than VC6.
As a result, there are some things in the C++ standard that you can do with
VS.NET, but not with VS6.

What code is causing you issues? What error messages are you seeing?

For Windows .NET is the way to go. C# is a modern programming language
and should be a good first language to learn.

Did your C++ programs stop compiling with VS.NET? This could be due
to a more standards compliant version of the C++ compiler in VS.NET.
