I need to get familar with the Visual Studio development tool using Visual C++.  For the time-being, I want to create .c code not .cpp.  How is this done and how can I set the interface/workspace so that there aren't 450 options to click on.  The default interface is entirely too busy in my opinion.

I desire a step by step response to create a new workspace that will compile in C.

Thanks

Ok, great.  Can I tack on one or two more simple questions?  That is:

I have compiled code and now have errors.  The errors are listed in the docked window.  How can I get more info on each error?  For example, in Borland, if you hit the F1 key, the help file is launched on the appropriate error subject.

Thanks

In addition to the last (unanswered) question.  What menu will enable me to choose that the program be compiled in ANSI?

Thanks

Errors: select the error you wish to get help on (doubleclick it) place the marker over the errornumber and hit F1

ANSI: If you make sure you only use ANSI-compliant functions and. The standard C/C++ libraries are all ANSI-compliant. To disable all microsoft specifics, in your project do
meny->project->settings
chose c/c++ tab.
choose 'customize' category
select 'Disable language extensions'
