Visual C++. Building native .exe with forms. NO .NET

Hello World

I would like to ask if I can build native executable .exe files  in Visual C++ with forms and buttons that I got from Visual Studio 2008

Thanks

You could have a look at an MFC based application - C++ (with MFC) and no .NET components in sight.

Well, Windows Forms are specific to .NET, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8bxxy49h.aspx ("Windows Forms Overview") and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd30h2yb.aspx ("Windows Forms") - so, unfortunately the answer is "NO", since Forms do not work without any .NET framework. If you want to build native apps, you will have to resort to MFC, Qt, wxWindows or any other framework of your choice - or plain Win32.

if you post your current form of vs2008 we can tell you whether that can be done with mfc (and what efforts are needed).

to have an executable which runs without installed runtime you need to use mfc statically linked.
