You are here:

C++/C++/Visual C++


What is the difference between c++ and visaul c++? I know that c++ has the portability and all so if you know c++ how is it related to visual c++? Is visual c++ mostly for online apps? Would visual basic be better for desktop applications?  


Visual C++ is the term for using Microsoft's IDE, Microsoft Visual Studio. There is no difference between the two. Visual C++ is just developing in the Microsoft environment.

Visual Basic is better for online and web based applications. I would personally stick with C/C++ for anything else.

I hope this information was helpful.
