obtaining vc++ 7.1 compiler

Hi,

I have a copy of Visual Studio 2002 Professional. What is the best way to
get hold of the new VC++ 7.1 compiler? I could upgrade to VS 2003 Pro, but
expensive. Could I buy VC++ 2003 Standard, that would be cheaper but would
it work with my existing VS 2002 Pro?

I live in the UK not in the US or Canada, so not eligible for MS special
deal.

Thanks,
John

Of course you can get the special deal (I did from Sweden). Try this
page, where it is available for GBP 19,00

(scroll down a page or two!)


Thanks,
