Hello, i started a c++ course and we are learning c++ in Visual Studio C++ but when i went to the internet there was a Visual Studio.net. Well, i wanted to know if they are the same or is there something different about it?

Yes, there is a difference between them. Visual Studios .NET is based on Microsoft's .NET architecture and all the languages use the .NET library. Visual C++ on the other hand uses the standard (Microsoft) C++ libraries. You can still use Visual C++.NET much in the same way as the regular though (C++.NET isn't as well-ingrained with the .NET scheme as VB.NET and C#.NET, although this's been changed/corrected in Visual Studios .NET 2003).

Visual Studio .NET is Visual Studio but with support for Microsft .NET architectures. It comes with regular Visual C++ and also what microsoft calls "Managed C++" which is basically non-cross-platform, non-cross-compiler "extensions" to c++ that allow for things like garbage collection. The IDE and C++ language support are much improved in Visual Studio .NET vs. Visual Studio 6.0 and below (i.e. better support for partial template specialization).
