Hello.

I don't presently own Microsoft's Visual C++ and I
would like to get it. What version(s) is/are available
now and where can I get it at a good (cheapest) price?

( Sorry - *two* questions!   ;)

jnowlin,

Version 6.0 of Microsoft's Visual C++ has just been released and is only days old.  I bought my upgrade yesterday at Fry's Electronics for what was probably a reasonable price.

I've found mail order is usually the cheapest way to buy software.  Microsoft's website actually has a listing of mail order and other sites carrying VC6.  Check it out at:

I really enjoy the product.  I upgraded from version 4.0 and found the online documentation to be much, much more helpful.

Hi -

chensu had the correct link:

 http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/prodinfo/purchase/default.asp

I guess I'll look for the standard edition, or version 5.0?
