I'm borrowing this textbook from one of my teachers that teaches C++, but I can't find a compiler from microsoft for windows 8, and the compiler that the textbook suggests only works up to 7. Do you guys know one?

What compiler is the book saying to use? You want to stay as close as possible.
All else failing you can compile code online @ ideone.com, but obviously you're better off doing it on your machine.
Recommendations from http://www.cplusplus...beginner/84209/
1- Code::Blocks -> http://www.codeblocks.org/downloads
2- Visual Studio C++ Express -> http://www.microsoft...2010-Visual-CPP (personal note - 2013 is their current version, but I'd recommend staying away from VSC if you're following a book using something else)
3- Netbeans -> http://netbeans.org/downloads/
4- Eclipse -> http://www.eclipse.o...opers/heliossr1
5- QT Creator -> http://qt.nokia.com/downloads (scroll down a bit to download it as a standalone)
6- wxDev-C++ -> http://wxdsgn.source...e.net/?q=node/4

It wants me to use MIcrsoft Visual C++ .NET compiler, and I tried the November 2013 and 2012,and attempted to install Windows SDK 7.1 first. Any compiler shouldn't be a problem, because it states "you will be able to create the programs in the book using most C++ compilers, often with little or no modification". I also think it was supposed to come with a cd that would download the standard 2003 compiler, but I didn't ever see it.

Oh, in that case - http://www.visualstu...press-windows-8
If your school gave you a .edu email address you can get the professional version of visual studio for free. (though tbh I don't think it's going to make any difference when you're just starting, but I'm not positive)

I recommend that people take Standard conformance very seriously when considering a compiler. If you can, avoid any compiler that doesn't closely approximate the ISO standard or fails to supply a solid implementation of the standard library. The recent releases from all the major C++ vendors do that.
