We are thinking about upgrading from Visual Studio 2005 to VS 2013.
Is there a list anywhere of gotchas?
What aspects of VS2005 do you use?
As you've posted in a VC++ forum, the C++ compiler and standard
library are more standard conforming, so there may be some parts of
your code that require changes, but they're usually minor and are
generally for the good.
You'll probably find the IDE is slower to start.
If you use the Setup/deployment projects - they're gone, though there
is now a project that's resurrected it, albeit that it doesn't support
XP generation OS's.
