    C++ is a programming language, like a standard.
    Visual C++ is a set of tools to code in that standard. notabley the IDE (interface Development Enviroment) and compiler (turns text into computer code)

    C++ standard is free. Visual C++ will cost you the skin off your back.

    But I assume its very good right?

    Can you estimate how much it costs?!??!?!

    And whats up with all these languages ending with .NET like APS.NET. Are they new or just enhanced?

    Well it depends on which technology. ASP.net is Microsoft's new or not so new now, serverside technology.

    Visual C++ .Net or Visual Studio.Net are just new versions of previous ones with one notable exception to the compiler. This exception is infact one big change to the way that processes and inparticular libraries are called and handled. This is to solve a problem called DLL Hell which I can't explain off the top of my head because I don't know exactly every detail just a brief overview because it doesn't really concern me ..

    All the Visual/.Net products from Microsoft can cost quite a bit. But Visual C++ .Net retails for only $600 AUD. I think Visual Studio .Net is about $1600 AUD..

    (Current AUD == 70 US Cents roughly).

    C++

    The difference in Visual C++ and C++ are that the visual c++ is more on the visual side. I programed in visual c++ about 4 months ago. I also did the same in C++ i know that also in Visual C++ you are able to connect to access with the ODBC driver that comes with windows. If you are in linex I am not for sure what they have to connect. In C++.net you are able to write the 6.0 code in the .net enviroment. I am not for sure but I have heard you can do this with the other .net programs that come on the visual studio.net
    thanks
