Here's a tip that a lot of people probably already know. On the other hand I've been using MSVC since version 4 and just realized that I could do this.

Under Tools->Options, under the Format tab if you pick 'Comment' in the Colors box you can set both the foreground and background colours. I find it helps to make code 100x more readable.

The zip file viewer built into the Developer Toolbox made use of the zlib library, as well as the zlibdll source additions.
