I can't say it with certainty, but I would not bet anything on that afirmation
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
It's a C++ API making heavy use of compiler macros. While not impossible, its design would make any API wrappers massive fugly affairs (and MFC is fugly enough on its own).
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

We're still using VS2008 as our primary development tool, even though we purchased licenses for VS2015. Our workload is such that VS2019 will be obsolete before we have time to update. It's not even that we can't update the code. The problem is that there isn't sufficient time and people to do the regression test necessary.
And I know full well all of the smells that last statement gives rise to.
I feel your pain - I'm just glad that as our product is itself a tool for testing embedded system software, it's particularly easy for us to have automated whole-system regression tests. We just run existing tests that our (internal to our company) customers have used & verify that all the output artifacts remain the same (except where we expect the changes, of course).
If it makes you feel any better, we're particularly bad with unit tests - we have a few, but probably less than 1% coverage. And when we started, we had no SCM, and then when we did get SCM, it was SourceSafe...
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
Whitespace[^], of course.
It's a very clean and concise language and it's so intuitive that I've never actually seen a bug in it!
I've been replacing Whitespace with Brainf*ck[^] so I can utilize the full F*ck stack.
If you're doing any other languages you should seriously reconsider a career change because apparently you're unfit to code without training wheels.
