Hello, I'm at work and wanting to install Microsft VC++ V6 on me box. However I've left the CD at home and was wondering if I could download the demo / trial version?

I don't think version 6 is still available for download. Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition is though. However I don't think it comes with MFC/ATL/WTL and the platform sdk is a separate download.

If you're looking into building Win32 applications using the Windows API, you may also want to consider Dev-C++.
