Using Visuel Studio 2005 and the choices I have are as follows Could someome help me to understand what they are?

ALT
CLR
General
MFC
SMART DEVICE
WIN32

Any help to clarify what these choices mean would be Appreciated.

Thank you Dick

for standard C++ (ISO/IEC 1998,2003), the project type you would use is one of Win32 Console Application / Win32 library / General MakeFile Project. if you are new to Visual Studio 2005, start with a Win32 Console Application project. and in the project settings, disable microsoft language extensions. ( either /Za compiler switch or from the IDE, Menu -> Project -> Properties -> Configuration Properties -> C/C++ -> Language -> Disable Language Extentions = True )

Thank you for the help it is appreciated.
