    What exactly do you want to know? The built-in help in MSVS is pretty good, so perhaps you should try that. I think there is even tutorials.

    Sure, but you'll need to ask specific questions, otherwise you'll get vague answers.

    Yes, but it is the same for C, as well. C can compile under C++, if you will.
    If you need to compile C with a C compiler, rename the files to .c instead of .cpp. The rest is the same.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    The ONLY difference for C instead of C++ is that you should name the files .c instead of .cpp - that way they will be compiled as C rather than C++. Debugging C is the same as C++, compiling still uses the same menu's and short-cut keys. The online help will almost certainly tell you so - but it may not be the most obvious thing.
