I’m professional database programmer with VB6,C# 2008, SQL Server, but totally new to VS C. But now I need to learn it. I have a external device which I should rule using VS C .
I have a follow questions – as I see examples are for VC 6. But I’m under Win 7 32 bit and when I start VS C IDE and try to open project it crash.
1. What options I have to make VS C 6 working under Win 7? I can’t use Virtual PC as I have external device, may be some other virtual solution which cover full function with external hardware, but also I need to share some files (I need to create DLL or OCX which to reference in other project under Win 7 and I may need frequently change)
2. In VS 2008 I have VC++ . This VC++ demands NET framework? I’m very sure I do not want NET framework to mess in my call to API for this external device. It only can make errors. My examples are on VC , not in C++ , there big difference, right?
