C++ – Things to keep in mind when migrating from VS2008 to VS2010


So, I'll be soon working on porting two APIs (C++ and C++/CLI) to use the VS2010 compiler. I think it'd be a good idea to have a head start on this. Any tips?

Best Solution

Breaking changes to C++/STL projects are outlined here.

vs2010 will also use a different build mechanism in the for of MSBuild.

Unfortunately, the revamped Intellisense in vs2010 won't extend to C++/CLI which some people aren't too happy about, however native code developer can look forward to a more responsive environment (hopefully).
