Windows 95 and Windows 98 vs. Windows NT

Visual C++ version 6.0 requires either Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT version 4.0 or later, all of which have the same user interface. We recommend that you use Windows NT as your development platform because of its stability—you can often go for months without rebooting your computer. If you use only the MFC programming interface, your compiled programs will run under Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT, but a program can include Win32 calls that use specific Windows 98 or Windows NT features.
