Very briefly:
C++ is a computer language.
VC++ is an IDE sold my Microsoft, which ships with MS's C++ compiler, for the Windows platform.

In a broader sense:
MS ships many APIs, libraries and classes (in C and C++) (MFC, the Windows API) which provide code for GUI and greatly speed up common tasks while programming for the windows platform. These libraries / classes / style of coding is generally associated with the Visual Studio IDE (since most windows programers seem to prefer VS).

There is no difference, or rather, there is no such thing as VC++. Microsoft Visual Studio or Visual C++ Express are often misnamed as VC++. However, they are just IDEs (Integrate Development Environments) which allow you to edit and develop programs written in C++. Take a look here[^] for more information.

Well, VC++ is probably used to mean MFC and the like.

C++ is a programming language, VC++ is Microsoft's implementation of that programming language. So ideally VC++ would implement a superset of the C++ standard and provide ways of turning all the non-standard bits off. To be fair it hasn't been doing too badly since 2003 at that last goal.

I dont think its fully correct to say MS's "implementation" of C++, after all it follows the C++ specifications.
