The answer to this question is obvious.

Yes, to legally work with VC++ you must purchase a copy.

If you really mean, can I develop Windows programs without Visual C++, then it is possible.  Go to:

http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/

and you can find information on the DJGPP port of GCC to the PC.  You can also get information on RSXNT which is a Windows development environment based on these tools.

See http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/v2faq/faq009.html#Windows apps

Hi,
Thanks. I heard that you can download VC++ (something like learners' edision, like personal oracle!) from the following site. But it did not work(the download process halted in the middle!). Do you have any idea about it?
Thanks,

I've never heard of a VC++ Free Edition and I looked at this URL and didn't see it there.  There is a lower priced Basic or Personal edition of Visual Basic but I don't think that VC++ has a counterpart.
