What is difference between Visual Studio 2005 and Visual C++ Express?

Hi

I would like to find what the difference between Visual C++ 2005(Installed with Visual Studio 2005) and Visual C++ 2005 Express. Are there limitations on the Express Edition or everything is just the same.

    Might want to search the MS website for the answer:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/

    The free version is most likely limited in some way, otherwise it wouldn't be free. I haven't tried it so I don't know. But from what I heard, the free version allows you to do plenty.

    The competitor Borland (http://www.turboexplorer.com/) has released a similar, completely free version that allows you to do pretty much everything but using custom VCL components.

    Professional/Enterprise editions contains things like multiple DB support and web junk.
  • The free version does not allow you to distribute apps. The app you compile won't work on another system that does not have vc++ 2005 and various other libraries.

    Two limitations are no resource editor (It does support resources, however), and no profilier.

    ...And a stupid sprintf() warning. You'll see.. :-)[/blue]

    Perhaps you are confusing it with the tons of runtime junk you have to deliver together with a .NET program?

    Regarding the resource editor in .NET I never understood its purpose. Writing a .rc file is hardly the most difficult task out there. And when it's written, simply run it through a resource compiler to get a .res file. What's the big deal?

    Nope. Just a simple directory containing my MSVC++ Express built programs, DLLs, and program files (images, data files, models, et al..)

    I never used .NET.

    Agreed. Of course, if a program requires *alot* of resources (*ahem* Microsoft), it could get a little more complex.
