I was wondering if any of you'll know any native compilers or compilers the use the very, very first form/version of C++ (like it came from Bjarne Stroustrip) and also some C compilers, try to suggest free ones.
Yes, the very first form of C++, or some un-managed C++ compilers.
There's a big difference. Most free C++ ones only compile 'unmanaged' (that is native) C++ (even the Microsoft C++ one compiles the native C++, it is NOT 'only for managed C++'). On the other hand, C++ has evolved (improved) and you'll probably find that an updated compiler is way better than an old one.
It is better having a modern C++ compiler (NOT a C++/CLI one*, C++/CLI is NOT standard C++, is a Microsoft 'extension'). Modern C++ compilers produce native code like older ones do (very outdated C++ compiler, e.g. turbo C++, produce code not running on modern computers).
(*) Or use the 'C++/CLI enabled' compiler for compiling standard C++ code. As I said before, Microsoft compiler CAN produce native (not requiring the .NET framework) code.
Not true, most old compilers are designed for specific systems just the same. If you want a compiler that works anywhere then go for the GNU versions (gcc/g++) which need to be configured and built on the target system; of course this means you need a previous compiler to build it. You have not said which platform you are targeting so it's not easy to recommend anything else. However I would recommend any of the Express Editions[^] for Windows, gcc for Linux/Unix, and a straightjacket for Mac.

The 'first' C++ compiler, CFront, actually produced C code as the output. Which might not be what you expect a compiler to do but which does fit the definition.
You can find source code for CFront. To compile CFront you will need some non-trivial knowledge of C and make files. You will also probably need to make modifications as C wasn't standarized at the time so the library APIs are likely different.
I am loading an extension dll from my mfc client application, when click on the menu first time the dll dialog is being loade and after i exit or close the dialog, and again clicking on the menu to load again it's giving error that "A required resource was unavailable". what could be the problem please help me to resolve this
