Deploying Microsoft Visual C++ applications on VMS

As it says above

Can you deploy Microsoft Visual C++ applications on VMS?

The .NET framework Version is 2.0

Re: Deploying Microsoft Visual C++ applications on VMS

Terse questions beget terse answers.

The terse answer: No.

The longer answer: If you remove all references to the MVC pieces and to the .NET framework and to any Microsoft-specific extensions to C++, sure, you could follow this path. This would be working with standard C or C++ (which is available on OpenVMS) with a whole lot of IDE in the way of that. Which doesn't seem to make all that much sense.

Some Microsoft MVC/.NET software applications can be rebuilt for and then deployed on the Mono framework, though Mono is not ported to and is not available on OpenVMS.

The better answer: what problem(s) are you looking to solve here with the use of Microsoft Visual C++? Sure, you're looking to code. But are you looking for the compilers, for the libraries and frameworks, or an IDE, or something else? If you're looking for an IDE for OpenVMS, for instance, then there are options.
