Tools & Resources
“The best way to compile legacy code”Strengths:
Can compile all your old VS projects without requiring major changes.
5 years old, can't access the latest Windows libraries, IDE is dated
If you are looking at this product, it's probably because you have an old VS2005 project that just wouldn't compile or run with a newer Visual Studio. The $500 will save you a week of converting projects.
Reliability and functionality.
Overall great product.
