    C++ Application without using .Net

    I have a situation where I want to code a C++ console based application using Visual Studio 2005 or higher but cannot use .NET framework. I mean at the client side the application should run even if .Net framework is not installed. Is there any option in Visual studio to create a project without .Net frame work
    Is it possible? or should I revert back to Visual Studio 6 to achieve this. Please help me

    there's no .net support in c++ (no .net framework to be installed) except of managed C++.
    Visual C++ does not interact with any of the libraries of the Net framework.

    Of course. Create a Win32 console application project, not a CLR project. All you need to provide is the VC++ redistributable DLLs to be installed on the target machine.

    Here are the links to the redistributable packages. Chose the one matching your development environment (with or without service pack).
