Hi, I just bought a hp laptop installed with Vista business and I hava installed in it Microsoft

Visual C++ 6.0. Initially, I was able to write programs with it but it could not execute the

programs.

Now, I am even faced with a bigger problem, it cannot open a workspace. When I go to

File>New>32 Console Appl>Finish>Okay .... a dialogue box appears on the sreen saying

Microsoft (R) Developer studio has stopped working. Then asks for debugging and when I

debug another window with the same debug appears until finally all the pragram windows

close.

Could it be compatability issue btn Vista and Visual 6.0. Kindly assist.

Nick

Given that Visual C++ 6 is 10 years old I would bet the farm that it's compatibility. I would highly suggest you upgrade to a version newer than a decade old.

Yes. Toss that compiler out and upgrade to VC++ 2008. The Express edition is free, but doesn't support MFC.
