Visual C++ 2.x

Visual C++ is a greatly enhanced and re-branded version of Microsoft C/C++. The Visual C++ line is primarily aimed at Windows development on 386 CPUs. 5.0 and later were bundled as a part of Microsoft Visual Studio.



Release notes

Version 2.0 was the first 32-bit only version. However, Chicago/Windows 95 had not yet been released and few used NT yet, which greatly limited its popularity.

There was a Visual C++ 2.0 RISC Edition for MIPS and Alpha processors, as well as a cross-platform edition for the Macintosh (68000 instruction set).
