vs2012 mfc standard vs visual studio
Posted on 2014-12-26
I've been away from VS for quite some time, updated to VS2012, and decided to put my head back into it for a couple of small projects. I created a MDI project, and foolishly(maybe) allowed the default "Visual Studio" style as opposed to "MFC Standard." When I first ran the program, I was really surprised by the presentation which was different to day the least.
I now have, on the running program, a standard output section, a File View, Properties, build, etc. I thought OK this is part of the debug package, and I'll have to learn how to use it, but when I created a Release Distribution those extra windows are still there.
I don't have a lot of time invested in this project, so I can start over if I need to. My questions:
1. What is this view all about, and why would I want it?
2. What would my users to with it?
2. Is there an easy to convert back to MFC Standard?
