Visual C++ 2008 Feature Pack

Filed under: Development — adallow @ 4:33 pm

The Feature Pack provides several exciting features for C++ developers, such as a major update to MFC and an implementation of TR1.  Using the included MFC components, developers can create applications with the “look & feel” of Microsoft’s most popular products – Microsoft Office, Visual Studio and Internet Explorer.  New components include the Office 2007 Ribbon Bar, Visual Studio docking and auto hide windows, Vista theme support, “on the fly” menu and toolbar customization, Shell management classes and much more.  Our implementation of TR1 contains a number of important features such as smart pointers, regular expression parsing, containers (tuple, array, unordered set, etc) and sophisticated random number generators.

This product is a freely available download to any Visual Studio 2008 Standard or above customer and is fully covered under Microsoft’s standard support policies.  

You may also want to take a look at the online documentation and walkthroughs for both MFC and TR1.  The MFC documentation provides some great content to get you up and running quickly with the new components. “
