 Differences in editions of Visual C++


I am currently in the process of buying a copy of Visual C++ for
DirectX development but am confused about the differences in the three
different editions, i.e :-

        Standard Edition
        Professional Edition
        Enterprise Edition

Can someone please help me out here or atleast point me in the right

Many thanks, in advance

 Differences in editions of Visual C++
Standard (Learning) Edition - All compiler stuff, but no optimiser
Professional Edition - All compiler stuff with optimiser + install shield +
some others
Enterprise Edition - All above with database server and more...

Therefore, all versions include directX.

V5.0 includes DirectX 3
V6.0 includes DirectX 5

although you can get hold of DirectX 6, and it should work on either
