#include <exception>

class FooException: public exception
{
   FooException() {};
};

And compiler says:

[C++ Error] File1.cpp(4): E2303 Type name expected

What's wrong? Under GCC it went just fine..

Use either

#include <exception>

class FooException: public std::exception
{
  FooException() {};
};


or

#include <exception>

using namespace std;

class FooException: public exception
{
  FooException() {};
};

The compiler does not know about 'exception', as it is a member of the 'std' namespace, so you either have to use scope resolution ('std::') or refer to the namespace you want to use.

I knew nothing about namespaces before, thanks!

I wonder if this piece of code will compile under GCC now...

It should - if you have an up-to-date STL version
