Hi, just a query about versions of Microsoft Visual Studio.

I last year created my C++ programs using Visual Studio .Net 2003 and have noticed that my new uni course uses 2005. Will I be unable to run my old programs in the 2005 version? Ive had compatibility issues before but that was with the free download of visual studio. I have 2003 on my home pc and I dont want to remove it if it will render my current programs defunct.

Thanks for any reply.

Depends on the complexity of programs. For the most part, your plain c++ code should run OK on 2005. If you try to build the full project built in '03 on the '05 system, first it will need to convert the project files (not the code file) - generally painless.
