Try this one. This is what I learned on however, I don't remeber any of it. There is a free 30 day trial for Borland http://www.borland.com/downloads/download_cbuilder.html

Dev-C++ is a free compiler, get it here - http://www.bloodshed.net/

Also, you should look into the Microsoft Visual Studio Express edition of Visual C++ - it's free for non-commercial use; it exists to stop people pirating the professional editions for home use - they don't make much money from home enthusiasts anyway.

Am I right in saying your great tutorial is cplusplus.com? I found that okay, but I recommend you buy a book from Wrox Press (such as Beginning Visual C++) - no free online tutorials can go into as much depth as books written by paid professionals - online tutorials might teach you how to use C++ syntax, but most dump you in the deep end too early and you find you are making inefficient programs with outdated techniques.

I believe there is a Visual Basic Express Edition for free, yes. Look on Microsoft's website. However, it won't be Visual Basic 6 since that is about six years old. It'll be .NET, so expect new syntax.

Visual Basic uses the BASIC language. Not C++. So the compiler for VB wont compile C++ code.

What you need is the GCC & CPP compiler. I'm not entirely sure how easy it is to install for Windows but for Linux its there when you install it.

I wanna learn both Visual Basic (i'm taking a class on it in school, and wanted a compiler or w/e for at-home use) and C++ just because it is very popular language and Blizzard only hires ppl trained with C++ ;)

And yes, ty very much :D, Microsoft did off two free compilers for VB and C++ <3 <3 <3 <3 and they have GREAT tutorials offered by them, i was shocked
