I believe visual studio is the user interface, and it not only supports visual basic but also visual c++, c#, web development etc. Visual basic, on the other hand, is a programming language.

c is not so look and feel, flexiable vb is rich in GUI, flexiable

C++ is cross-platform, Visual Basic is Windows-only. C++ code does not require a runtime library while Visual Basic does. Visual Basic is more abstract and easier to work with.

The difference between C and the advanced C is that C is basic. On the other hand, the advanced C is thorough and to the detail.

Visual Studio is a developement environment that can support many different languages like C++, j#, Basic, etc. "Visual" is added to the names because Microsoft has tweak the langauages a bit in order to integrate the .Net functionality and other features the would like to support. C++ is a stand alone languages that was incorperated into Visual Studio package.

Visual Basic 1.0 is copyright (c) 1991 Microsoft Corporation, if that's any help. VISUAL BASIC was invented in 1991

They're two entirely different programming languages, so it's rather like asking what's the difference between French and English (possibly more like asking what's the difference between German and English).One difference is that Visual Basic is a product of a specific company - Microsoft - while there are any number of different C compilers produced by different people and companies, most of which more or less adhere to the standards as published in a book (The C Programming Language, by Kernighan and Ritchie), with "more or less" covering a pretty wide territory.

No but you can in C or C++

Visual studio 2010 supports 5 programming languages. These are Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual C++, Visual F# and JScript.

Visual Basic is a Windows-specific programming language, developed by Microsoft. C++ is a standard, generic and cross-platform programming language. Microsoft's implementation is called Visual C++, but it is not standards-compliant. Visual Basic requires a runtime library. C++ does not. Visual Basic is 100% object-oriented. C++ is not 100% object-oriented, but gives programmers greater freedom of choice. C++ is efficient, compact and performs extremely well on a wide variety of hardware. Visual Basic programs are inefficient, generally large, and much slower than equivalent C++ programs, and only run on Windows.


You can't integrate C++ source code directly into Visual Basic code. In order to make use of code written in another language, including C++, you must compile that source to produce a DLL. You can then link to that DLL via Visual Basic. The only caveat is that you must replace the C++ data types in the function declarations with the equivalent Visual Basic data types, such as 'Byte' for a C++ unsigned char, or 'Single' for a C++ float.

If you are a student, you can download Visual Studio 2008 This is a Microsoft site. You must be able to verify that you are a student. There is other programming software available also. VS 2008 has Visual Basic 2008, C #, C/C++, and more. If you are not a student, I don't know of anyplace you can get Visual Basic 2008 free.

.NET supports a number of programming languages such as Visual C#, Visual basic .NET, Visual F#, Visual C++ .NET, managed C++ extensions, scripting languages such as VBScript, Jscript.

The syntax and operation is very similar, but visual basic isn't as powerful. Think of it as a watered down, easier version of c. With C, you can create anything from a simple calculator application to a full blown operating system. Visual basic can't make anything as extensive as an operating system, but it is much faster to code in visual basic when you want to make form based programs, or applications.
