For the financially challenged:

Allegedly there exists a downloadable freebie, just the compiler with
none of the Visual stuff. I suspect it is an urban legend. Maybe you
can find it in the maze of (actually if it exists it is
more likely to be in MSDN).

I got an Educational Edition of Visual C++ included with a Deitel and
Deitel How to Program C++ book. Its exactly the same except for an
annoying "You must register to get rid of this" (or something) everytime
you run a binary compiled using it.

There are other legitimate ways to get the use of Visual Studio, i just
cant think of them at the moment.
