Code::Blocks is not a compiler it is an IDE. An IDE simply is the text editor that you use to write code more efficiently.

A compiler is the program that actually reads your program, translates it into Assembly (ftw) which tells the CPU what to do.

If you have MSVC++ then use that IDE, which comes with Microsoft's implementation of the C++ compiler which is mostly standard, but it does have it differences, however when working with relatively basic stuff it is the same. : )

Legolizard is right about what he said about Code::Blocks, but anyway, to answer your question, you can use MS Visual C++, provided that you mention it in your posts.
