Im sure Microsoft must be a synonym for crap?
I recently have had to do come C++ coding - not my usual play ground i must admit, but never the less, something I needed to do.
My first port of call was to download the Visual C++ installer, which I did. Fine and dandy I thought, it seemed to work ok. The GUI was typical 2007 style, so yes, I couldn’t find a thing.
I then set about doing some coding, only to find that even simple stuff like
<code>#include <windows.h> </code>
I was getting all manner of errors in the bottom console. I only then found out that without the super duper “Microsoft Platform SDK” you couldn’t actually do sweet fk all. So, to another 500mb download, on top of the painful download and installation of the IDE, this was somewhat insulting.
