VC++ .net 2005 express beta 2

P: n/a
Hi, sorry if this isnt the correct newsgroups for this questions but

im using vc++ 2005 express edition beta2 for learning to program vc++
..net, as in winforms applications and i was wondering if

can anyone point me to some sample code for writing to connect to a
existing telnet server

I just want to be able to establish a connection, send character info
and retreive the result sent back as a result of what i send.

Any advice appreciated
Also i notice in the beta 2 express edition you cant change the
"include" directory paths etc, is there a fix for this or is it
missing becasue it is still beta ?

Any release date for this package to become commercial on sale ?

Also i see the instructions for downloading the windows xp/2003 SDK
and running it with this beta 2 edition. Why would you want this sdk
? and is there a similar download to add/learn the MFC with this
package ?

2 last questions.

do managed programs written with 2005 editions defiently require the
2.0 beta .net runtime to run or will they also run under 1.1 ?

Why is there a .net 2.0 beta sdk. Why would you need this other SDK
when writing .net managed programs under 2005
thanks

has a simple telnet client in C#. You should be able to translate it to
C++/CLI easily. Google around a bit - I'm sure there are many more such
examples (I found this one in less than 30 seconds).

It's a bug in beta 2 that this feature is missing.

November 7, 2005.

You need the SDK if you want to do native (unmanaged) C++ windows
applications. If you want to use MFC, you have to buy Standard Edition or
higher.

Definitely 2.0. Note that a lot of managed code (C# or VB.NET) can be
compiled for either runtime. Since C++/CLI is new in VS2005, it can only
target the 2.0 runtime.

You don't need to use Visual Studio. With the .NET SDK you can do managed
code development using a plain text editor and the command line build tools.
