Or Dev-C++ as long as you don't install it in the default location. Put it in my documents or preferably on another HDD than your windows partition.

All modern compilers work on 64-bit Vista. I don't use a 64-bit compiler, but these 32-bit compilers work ok. I have VC++ 2008 Express, Code::Blocks, Dev-C++. MiniGw. No doubt that modern Borland compilers work too. VC++ 6.0 will have a few problems as will TurboC/C++.

@Ancient Dragon
If i may ask why would VC++ 6.0 and Turbo C/C++ have problems and is there a way to fix it?

Works just fine on my computer in the default location of c:\Dev-cpp

When you start vc++ 6.0 I get errors that it is not fully compatible with Vista, but ignoring that message the compiler seems to work ok. It could be that I just have not encountered the proglems that warning is talking about.

I have not been able to get TurboC 1.0 to work at all. I don't know about the newest version of Turbo C++, since its a 32-bit compiler I assume it might work as well as VC++ 6.0, if not better.

[edit]Just found this workaround, but I have not tried it.[/edit]

Assuming you were looking for a 64bit compiler:

The VS2010 Beta works nicely in 64bit.

What I did in XP 64 was download VS2008 express and then download the platform SDK (which contains a 64bit compiler) -- There are some instructions on the web for how to get the platform SDK to hook to VSExpress -- but I just used a different IDE and use the compiler.
