I have VC++ 2003 Standard, and I was moving to VC++ 2005 Express, but it doesn't have an unmanaged resource editor, so I have two choices:

1. Find an unmanaged resource editor that works (I've only tried ResEd, so far, and it doesn't work).

2. Purchase the latest VC++ Standard, which is 2005.

I think I want to go with option #2. Is it possible to buy VC++ 2005 Standard by itself, like I did with VC++ 2003 Standard, or do I have to buy the entire Visual Studio 2005 Standard Does VC++ 2005 Standard have an UNmanaged resource editor

Thanks for your time,

Looking on Amazon, they have Microsoft Visual Studio Standard 2005 and Microsoft Visual Studio Standard 2005 Upgrade for $260. Is the upgrade for VS 2003 Standard Can get an upgrade from VC++ 2003 Standard Amazon doesn't appear to have anything for VC++ 2005 Standard, so I assume not. I don't want to pay $165 for Visual Studio if Visual C++ exists for $110 somewhere. Does it even exist Why... is it so difficult to find information on this from Microsoft's site <sigh>

Thanks for any help,

Watch 2 webcasts and MS will give you VS2005 standard.

I tried to do that at the end of last year to get Office but the site was so busy I could not get in. Then I could not find the link to get back. If that type of deal still exists, then it is probably quite worthwhile.

I didn't know about this, what's the deal and where do I go

I've been told that Visual C++ 2005 Standard does not exists, and that I must purchase the entire Visual Studio if I want it.

Actually I have another option:

3. Use the resource editor from VC++ 2003 Standard, which seems to work fine! Smile

I will do this.

Found it myself. Looks good although I'm not too interested in VB Lab sessions.

It doesn't look like you'd be guaranteed to get VS 2005 Standard...

"...you will be eligible for one or more of the following incentives:..."

Of course, the big prize in VS 2005 Standard, followed by a bunch of smaller things that could be the "one" thing you become eligible for. And being eligible for it doesn't mean you're going to get it.

Also, it's only available in the United States.
