can anyone tell me the difference between visual c++ express edition and visual c++ .net? It would apear that they are the same. Both seems to use the dot net framework. Are there any significant differences? And also how do they differ from other types of c++ such as ansi c++ and visual C++ 6.0?
also how compattible are they? If you write a program in one type of c++ can it be used on most others without having to rewrite large sections of code?
And finally which one is best for developing games.
