Two Different Answers

1. C++ is a programming language. Visual C++ is Microsoft's implementation of it.

When people talk about learning Visual C++, it usually has more to do with learning how to use the programming environment, and how to use the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFCs) for Windows rather than any language issues.

Visual C++ can and will compile straight C and C++.

2. VC++ is just Microsofts version of C++. Like most compiler writers Microsoft has added some "useful" extensions to the C++ standard but also like most compiler writers they included a command line switch so that you can turn off those extensions.

Strictly speaking VC++ also includes an entire development IDE where as C++ refers to just the compiler.
