Release Notes

This is the final release to accompany Parallel Programming with Microsoft® Visual C++. It includes:
  • The C++ sample code for every chapter.
  • An additional PDF containing answers to the end of chapter questions.
  • Color versions of the screen shots in Appendix B.
System Requirements

You will need at least Visual C++ 2010 Express to run the samples. However, you will need Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate to use some the parallel diagnostic tools such as the Concurrency Visualizer.

Note: Visual Studio Express users will see the following message when you open the Visual Studio solution (.sln) file for each of these samples: "Solution Folders are not supported in this version of Visual Studio. Solution Folder 'Solution Items' will be displayed as unavailable." Although this folder is not available in Visual Studio Express, you can still build and run the projects. A separate "Book Samples - Express" solution is also provided. Refer to the README.txt file for a brief description of each project and which chapter it relates to.

Getting the Book
The eBook is already available from O'Reilly and Safari Books Online. The printed book can also be pre-ordered from O'Reilly.

Most of the content is also available on the MSDN Library: Parallel programming with Microsoft .NET. The layout isn’t as nice but all the content is there.
