This topic compares the default ATL project configurations in Visual C++ .NET with the default project configurations in Visual C++ 6.0.

In Visual C++ .NET, the ATL Project Wizard creates two project configurations by default.

In Visual C++ version 6.0, the ATL COM AppWizard (now called the ATL Project Wizard) created six project configurations by default. The configurations were variations on Release, Debug, Unicode, and use of CRT and ATL settings. All these configurations can be duplicated in Visual C++ .NET using the Configuration Manager, if so desired.
