Good Book for Visual Studio 2005 C++ (Change from VC6 to VS2005)

P: n/a

i'm looking for a good book to learn .NET and VS2005 (C++) . I know
MSVC6 (C++) very good.

Is there a book like "The Bible" (The C++ Programming Language) from
Bjarne Stroustrup for "Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 2005" and .NET?

Which books can you recommend?

Thank you in advice :-D

Best Regards

There are very few books available about C++/CLI, the C++ for .NET
language implemented in Visual Studio 2005.


Pro Visual C++/CLI and the .NET 2.0 Platform
by Stephen R. G. Fraser
ISBN: 1590596404

This book covers a wide range of topics, from the basics of C++/CLI to
using the .NET framework classes and components to design real-world
applications. It provides plenty of examples, and has an easy-to-read
style. It is not a strong language guide -- if you expect anything like
"The C++ Programming Language" or "C++ Primer", you'll have to wait a bit.

If you plan to develop WinForms applications and you're new to .NET,
this book should introduce you to a wide range of technologies.
Experienced programmers will find some parts of the book trivial (it
doesn't assume that you know the C++ language), but you can skim through
that very quickly. What I like about it is it gets you started real
quickly with the basics. If you want a really deep discussion of a
particular field of .NET, there's a much better chance that you'll find
that in a C# book than in a C++/CLI one.


Enterprise Application Development with Visual C++ 2005
by Max Fomitchev
ISBN: 1584503920

This book covers enterprise application development. I have not read it,
so I can't really comment.


I'm looking forward to the following books, to be released in the next
few months:

C++/CLI Primer
by Marcus Heege, Gordon Hogenson, Stan Lippman
ISBN: 1590597052

C++/CLI Essentials
by Stanley B. Lippman
ISBN: 0321174054

Expert Visual C++/CLI
by Marcus Heege
ISBN: 1590597567

CLR via C++/CLI
by Jeffrey Richter, Julian Templeman
ISBN: 0735622485

I expect C++/CLI Primer to be a strong language-oriented guide.
