Hi

I am using Dev C++ for my development purpose.

I have few queries

1. Can I use it for making professional applications.

2. Is Dev C++ is same as Visual C++.

Kindly advice

Regards
Karan

1) Yes, but I don't think anyone does because its only a beta compiler

2) No. They are two different compilers. Visual C++ is by Microsoft and Dev-C++ is by Bloodshed

I like Dev!

Even if it isn't really meant for professional purposes, it's still a great learning tool!

Until you run into compiler errors that don't occur elsewhere, or run code that compiles but isn't up to the C++ standard in other compilers >_>

Actually, Dev-C++ is just an IDE. It doesn't compile anything, but calls other compilers, such as minigw and Visual C++. Dev-C++ is apparently no longer under development, so I think Code::Blocks may actually be the better IDE

Time to download Code::Blocks =)

Ah I see, so the meaning of "default compiler" is really just some local compiler on your computer.

That does make more sense.
