c++.mfc - Should I recompile the MFC?

I download the MFC4.21.zip, it contain headers and source.
Should I use mfc42.dll directly which already in my win2000?
I use implib mfc42.dll to construct a mfc.lib, and link my app
with it, but got some error.
I want know if this can work or I must rebuild MFC through source code?

If you get the CD, you get the MFC libraries built and ready to use. www.digitalmars.com/shop.html

Do you mean I can't use MFC without the CD? I just want to study MFC with dmc++ because VC is too expensive for me.

No, but it's a lot easier with the CD.

 VC is too expensive for me.

The DMC++ CD is only $25.
