    Moved from the Lounge.

    And yes, MSVC has built-in support for C/C++ (native) in addition to C#/VB.net (managed); and many others can be added by way of installable language services.

    Yes, Visual Studio does indeed support C, even though it is oriented to C++. In order to compile a program as C, you need to give it the .c extension, as opposed to C++'s .cpp extension.

    However, since Microsoft has hitched its wagon on the future of C++, you will find that there is no support for C99. Which is cool, because if you wanted those extra features then you would use C++ and STL.
