Purchase without proof? What do you mean?

The price has been creeping up, they got rid of the "Standard" version of Visual Studio after the 2008 release. Although if price is a factor, look at purchasing a copy of Visual Studio 2008 Standard, a lot of people still use that and it's still a great IDE.

Few links you can go through:
- Getting Started with Visual C++ 2010[^]
- What's New in Visual C++ 2010[^]

If you want to test the trial version, see:[^]
Yes, of course it's part of Visual Studio. Visual Studio is the IDE (which supports a variety languages), Visual C++ is the C++ compiler, and yes, it does come with it.

It's a great IDE by the way, great choice. On the other hand, it seems to be creeping up in price... grrr!

Then why anything like this is not mentioned at Microsoft store or documnetation

It should be... unless they assume you should already know that. Anyway, why would you ask me why Microsoft does something the way they want to do it? Am I in the Microsoft decision board?
