Visual C++ .NET is Microsoft's newest version of Visual C++ and is part of Visual Studio .NET (VS .NET). It combines the previous features of Visual C++ with the new features of the .NET Framework, giving you the best of both worlds. Visual C++ .NET is currently the only .NET-capable language that allows you to mix traditional Win32 and Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) applications with the new .NET applications.
