    Hello

    I target the Microsoft platform developing in C++. At present I am not
    really interested in managed code/.NET etc and just write native C++
    programs. The Microsoft developer certifications seems to only cover .NET
    and all the stuff Microsoft wants to sell right now. But what about us less
    'sold' people?

    Is there anything from Microsoft to satisfy me?

    Angus,

    The Visual C++ exams from Microsoft have been retired. They were a part of
    the original MCSD certification, but were never popular - most people
    preferrred the VB route.

    I believe the new cert's C++ are C++.net now.
    Actually, I just wonder how you do native C++ in Vista? Everything I can
    find is that they are all in .Net 3.0 .

    cheers,

    You do it just like in earlier versions of Windows. The API hasn't changed
    much with Vista.
