VC++


VC++ is also known as Microsoft Visual C++, and is an integrated development environment (IDE) for the C, C++, and C++/CLI programming languages. It was first released as a standalone product, but later became a part of Visual Studio.

Visual C++ has tools for developing and debugging C++ code, especially code written for Windows API, DirectX and .NET Framework.

Advantages

Visual C++ can mix managed code (code that executes with the CLR) with unmanaged code (code that does not execute with CLR) in C++
Its speed of execution can be very fast because it can interact directly with the hardware, without any intervening layers
Applications developed in VC++ consume minimal resources, have a smaller size than those created using other .NET compliant languages and memory usage very low
Because it's an ANSI compliant language, the applications developed with VC++ can be ported to other platforms
Visual C++ has a feature called Profile-Guided Optimization, PogoSafeMode, which allows the developer to use safe mode or fast mode to optimize an application

Disadvantages

Creating a Windows Store account and authorizing an application for store deployment is not an integrated experience
It can be hard to write and maintain by inexperienced developers
