Visual C++ 2010 Express is a free set of tools that developers can use to create custom applications using basic and expert settings.

Visual C++ is a powerful development environment that's designed to give you detailed control when you build either native Windows (COM+) applications or .NET Framework managed Windows applications.

It's easy to install, and as long as you know your way around C++, shouldn't give you any problems. The newly designed start page makes finding your way around Visual C++ really simple, while an improved code editor also goes some way to making the process as easy as possible.

Just bear in mind that this is the express version of Visual C++, so some of the features that you may be used to - especially compilers and debugging tools - in the full version won't appear. Even so, it's a clean, crisp version that's perfect for beginners and users for whom C++ is a secondary programming language.

Visual C++ Express is a pared-down but still highly functional toolset for coding in C++.

The Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 has been replaced by Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition. Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition provides a complete integrated development and debugging environment making it the easiest way to create powerful applications using the C/C++ language. Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition also contains an enhanced version of the C/C++ optimizing compiler for the fastest executables. Best of all, the Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition is completely free.

Visual designers enable drag-and-drop creation of user interface code when building .NET Framework applications. Code colorization, syntax checking, IntelliSense and more help you code quickly and correctly. Quickly find and eliminate programming errors using an intuitive graphical debugger.

Create .NET Framework applications with advanced features such as data access, networking, and built-in printing support. Build 32-bit native code applications designed for Windows using the Windows Platform SDK.
