Smile book for Visual C++ express edition 2013 ?

Hi !

I have not been working on C++ since a while...

Now, I would like to start from scratch with Windows 8 and I downloaded VS express 2013 for Windows Desktop.

Which book do you suggest ?

Ivor Horton's Beginning Visual C++ 2012 sounds matching effectively but does it work even for the express edition ?

Thanks a lot

Hi t2p,

This book is perfectly valid for Visual Studio 2013 as it is smaller update to Visual Studio than we have had in the past with versions every few years.

Unfortunately the book covers quite a lot of areas that the Express Editions of Visual Studio 2012/2013 cannot do.

You can get a trial version of Visual Studio 2013 Professional from the Visual Studio website.

I suspect that is not exactly what you want to hear however the reality is that Visual C++ really does require the Professional or better version of Visual Studio due to the Express Editions not including support for things such as MFC. This is not an issue with languages such as C# as they only target the .NET Framework and not native libraries.

Post access to Visual Studio 2013 Professional and

Dear ditoax,

Thank you very much indeed...

Well here in Switzerland, I am ( we as far as I noticed ) encoutering serious difficulties since a while for having a clear access to Visual c++ following version 6..

Was not a huge problem until recently with acquisitions of Windows 8 - updated 8.1 and necessary to adapt ( re-adapt ) to Visual C++ 2013 ( including MFC ) as well as a pro. version for Visual Basic...... and about prices, also the fog !!!

Well, we need for a simple reason, as working in medical environment, over the simple aspects of using devices, for expressing some wishes of complementary developments, having some solid knowledge would help us in traducing with much more adequacy our needs......

thanks a lot

Best Regards
t2p
