I have a Toshiba laptop, I did install windows seven operating system and later activated it. I am passionate about programming, so I installed the microsoft visual studio compiler version 6.0. Unfortunately it has compatibility issues, in that it does not create objects after compilation, I have tried installing microsoft visual studio 6.0 compiler in different partitions but there are no changes. I now use the command prompt to compile C and C++ console programs but I  would like to create programs with GUI using the compiler. Is there a solution to my problem?

Hey,

Microsoft visual studio 6.0 has known compatibility problem with window 7 especially the 32 bit version.  Window 7 has been known to operate very well on Microsoft visual studio 2005 and 2008. It is therefore advisable that you obtain either of the two for successful operation.

Microsoft has stopped the support of visual studio 6.0 on window 7. Therefore, it is not possible to use the GUI compiler, but support for visual studio 6.0 runtime has been enabled. For this reason it is also advisable to downgrade to Window XP if your projects require visual studio 6. Newer versions of visual studio, that is, Visual studio 2010 and 2011 are all supported on window 7.

Unfortunately, I can’t find an actual or existing download for this version. If you need to install this version on Windows 7 but it is not working properly, try launching the program in compatibility mode. Right-click Microsoft Visual Studio Compiler and select “Properties”. In the properties dialog, go to “Compatibility” tab. Under “Compatibility mode” section, check “Run this program in compatibility mode for”.

Click the dropdown list and select an earlier version of Microsoft Windows like Windows XP or Windows Vista. Click “OK” then try starting the program. If this doesn’t work, select a different operating system from the dropdown list. If the problem continues, search or use a different compiler that supports Windows 7.
