Has anyone tried to write this tutorial using VC++ 2008 Express? The article claims to be written with VC++ 2005. But I thought 2005 and 2008 used compatible versions of CLR language. I'm getting all kinds of compiler errors -- for example
String* str; instead of using
String^ str; and creating objects with new instead of gcnew. The last straw for me was while attempting to implement the section concerning FileInfo class. None of the FileInfo methods Microsoft has in that article work.
