Question: v6.24 the end of an era for the legendary compiler (VC6), any farewell? I always thought it would be very cool if VC6 lasted as long as the 32-bit lifecycle but apparently it's not possible with REAPER's demands. Still, it's mind-blowing...
Asked by Gio (79.130.177.x) on March 3 2021, 2:52pm
Reply on March 3 2021, 3:21pm:
    To be fair, for the last 10+ years VC6 has been the compiler in name only -- it was actually ICC10 which pretty much replaced all of it except for the CRT, from what I can tell... :) And now it's VC2005 but still ICC10, so not really any different (except for the CRT).
