Can it be ported to Visual C++ .Net?  The Express version is a free 
download. In fact so are all of these:-

Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition
Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition
Visual C# 2005 Express Edition
Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition
Visual J# 2005 Express Edition

Go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/support/install/ to download 
these as .iso images so you can burn them onto CDs. Or dump them all to a 
DVD and run them with ISO Buster etc. There are also more freebies if you 
register them.
