There is a difference between the Visual Studio IDE and the Visual C++ compiler. This page is labeled 'Visual Studio' but jumps directly into the limitations of the Visual C++ compiler which is a different product. The VS IDE will work with (AFAIK) every Windows or MS DOS based compiler. The IDE ships as part of VC++ and as part of other MS Visual compiler lines (C#,, J++, etc) in addition to the the express edition of compilers that can be downloaded for free. Tantrikwizard

Not quite - the article discusses how to use the combination of the IDE and the compiler. I.e. visual studio as a whole. Also, what exactly are you aiming at here? Saying something's bad doesn't help when you don't have an alternative. - Combuster 10:44, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Maybe this information is important to report. Visual Studio Express Edition has limited functionality compared to the others editions, especially in extension functions The good new is that since few month Microsoft provide the Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition. This version is equivalent to the professional edition and is for free. --Gedd 06:16, 26 February 2015 (CST)
