My friend have a problem with running c++. She's using windows vista home basic. She's able to install C++ and run it but when she tries to launch any program she wrote, it pops out saying that it has a compatibility issue with this version of windows. Any ideas about what's wrong with it or how to fix it? thanks.
No. The 2008 compiler is more compliant with the C++ standard (see something like this for the few ways the 2008 compiler is not compliant-- they don't have a listing for 6.0 any longer) so it may pick up more corrections but it will make your code more compliant by extension.
