windebug works ok. Its free, and it basically does everything that the full Visual Studio debugger does. Obviously it only works with msvc-compiled objects. The VC 2003 Toolkit is limited in other regards, too. For example, it doesn't get shipped with the libraries to link with the DLL

Hmmm, After playing around a little with C#, I have to agree with Neil: C# rocks. Just to throw some salt in the wounds of the Python discussions, I cant help thinking that C# has all the advantages of both Python (run from source, easy to read) and C++ (strong typing, runs quickly). Btw, OSMP
