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).
