If you ask about C++ compiler, the Visual C++ Express 2008 is still supported just fine in Windows 7 (Orbiter 2010-P1 was compiled with VS2005).Hi all - redirected to this thread from the "Orbiter is dying, woe is me" thread! The OP is from 2007 I see. Can I ask you guys what's the recommended set today for Win 7 and Orbiter 2010?
When I had time I still coded with VS2005 (Professional edition) on Windows 7 and it worked fine. VS2005, 8 and 10 should all be fine for development on Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8.
Programs linked by VC++ 2010 aren't supported by Windows 2000 and XP SP1 (without special treatment that replaces DecodePointer with a dummy function), so Visual Studio 2010 isn't all fine for development there.and 10 should all be fine for development on Windows 2000,
