Well, yours is a bad question.
Roughly speaking, from the programmer point of view (you know, this is a forum for programmers), there's not a big difference between a DVD and a CD (apart of their capacities).
If the Lord God Almighty had consulted me before embarking upon the Creation, I would have recommended something simpler.

I have used VC6++ for several years. I am thinking about getting Visual Studio 2008. A friend of mine has it and I was playing around with it. I have a couple of simple quesitons.
I didn't see any option to create an exe file with static libraries. I saw where you could create installation packages but I like the ability to create a standard exe where the user doesn't have to install anything. Can this be done with VC++ 2008?
Also, will I be able to install Visual Studio 2008 without it breaking the Visual Studio 6?
The reason I am considering 2008 is because I cannot run VC6++ in debug mode when linking against the latest WinDDK release. Apparently that breaks debug mode.
As Naveen said, you can install VC++6.0 and VS2008 side by side without any problems and you can create link to CRT and MFC statically. However, VC 6.0 compiler is not very standard compliant and VC 2008 compiler is. What this means is that you might have to change your code syntatically in order to compile with VC 2008.
Thanks for the quick answer. I believe I will go ahead and get VS2008 and start learning it. Since I will be able to keep VC6++ installed I can maintain existing projects until I get them switched over.
I have a program in c builder and I have several buttons that access sounds. How do you play several sounds at once? For example if you press a button while running a sound it will interrupt the present one. I use the PlaySound function. Thanks!
I want to make a game of TicTacToe. WhenI resize the window I want to appear more buttons on the interface. From a matrix of 3x3 to 4x4 etc up to 9x9, depending on how much I resize the window. How do I do this?
I will make a free web site design to whoever provides me with a working answer (and something extra for the full program of playing tictactoe).
can somebody help me in understanding basic c++ connectivity with sql 2005...
Yes, if you come up with a specific query.
i am good in c# trying to learn C++ database part..
If you're using MFC, you may lookup the CDatabase class. You have other options like ADO, ODBC (without MFC as well), etc., There are a whole lot of articles on CP at all levels of complexity. You may want to read some of those from the beginner's section.
I have the follow pieces of code. A Server and Client code I wrote. I have a few problems. If I disable the sending data from the client and the receving data from the server. Everything works ok for somewhere between 900-4000 times. I then get WriteFileEx returned GetLastError 1450. If I disconnect the client and rerun the application, the Server works again for another 900-4000 times before another 1450 error.
As the code stands, at some point, between 1 and 5 times, both programs just freeze. No errors, nothing.
I can't see the money leak and I am only sending 34bytes to the client and retrieving 4bytes. I'm not doing anything more than 64bytes of memory. I really don't know what the problem is.
Well, your first problem is that you did not format your code properly i.e. within <pre></pre> tags and correctly indented. As such no-one is likely to spend much time trying to read it. Secondly, you need to either run it in the debugger or add debugging code to try and narrow down to at least the general area where it is going wrong.
