Microsoft has released Visual Studio Community 2013, a revamped edition of Visual Studio Professional 2013 which is free for individual and small business use (teams of up to five people).

It’s a versatile product. You can code apps and applications in C++, C#, VB, F#, HTML5, Python, JavaScript and more. Designers, editors, debuggers and profilers help to polish your work. There’s web tooling for ASP.NET, Node.js, and JavaScript, and Apache Cordova and Unity tools mean you can target iOS and Android, as well as Windows.

Thanks for posting this, Erol. To be tested; what drives me crazy is that if you find fairly recent VS projects on the web (e.g. VS 2005), and try to load them in VS 2010, most of the time VS complains that it can't read that obsolete crap, and leaves you alone guessing which settings are needed to compile the hello world. Microsoft sucks.

I've been experimenting for a couple days and have managed to code mfc apps with my bc9Basic.

Any one know of any mfc books or online references?
The ones I found (MSDN of course) are a bit sparse on non-Visual Studio uses.
Amazon has some old used books books(~$3.00) but knowing very little about mfc I'm not sure how dated they are.

I did a quick google search and found this text online: http://www.math.hcmuns.edu.vn/~tatuana/C%20For%20Win/MFC/Tai%20Lieu%20Tham%20Khao/Visual%20C++%20and%20MFC%20Programming%202nd.pdf  ( not sure how up to date this is ). You might search around for something like "free mfc book pdf" or something like that  ( there are many books you can read online ).
