hello...im new to visual studio 2008
How do i compile C in visual studio 2008?

i have read this thread "Compiling C"
and its says to do this...
Go to View Menu select Solution Explorer or CTRL+ ALT +L

Then Select The project that your are developing and right click on that.

Then select the Properties from the submenu.

Then select the Configuration properties from the Tree structure. under that select C/C++ then select Advanced. Now in the right side pane change the property
Compile As from Compile as C++ Code (/TP) to Compile as C Code (/TC)

Finally change your file extensions to .c

Now you configured you Visual Studio to compile C programs
