Using the VC++ 2003 Toolkit with Visual C++ .NET 2003 Standard Edition

Hi,

I use the Visual C++ .NET 2003 Standard Edition which doesn't include an
optimizing compiler. But Microsoft released the VC++ 2003 Toolkit
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/vctoolkit2003/) which provides an
optimizing compiler. Is it possible to replace the original "Standard"
compiler with this one ?

How could I do this ?

Thanks for your help,
Denis

I haven't tried it, and it isn't supported, but all you should need to do is
drop the files from .../vc7/bin from the VC++ toolkit into the corresponding
location in VC++ Standard edition. I'm certain that you'd need c2.dll,
since that's the compiler backend where the optimizer is implemented, but
I'd just go ahead and copy the entire directory.

Thank you, I'll try.
