    how is called the windows peogramming language? Powershell?

    My book about game programming (uses C as base) has a small introduction on Windows programming.

    I want to learn that language separately. Is it called powershell?

    example code

    Code:
     #include <windows.h>
    
    int WINAPI WinMain(HISTANCE hInstance, HISTANCE hPrevInstance,LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nShowCmd)
    {
    MessageBox(NULL, "Text","Text", MB_OK | MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
    }
    It also includes functions called WinMain , WinProc

    and thos HINSTANCE parameters

    Is it POWERSHELL?

    Now, it is called the Windows API.

    No. I suggest that you search the Web concerning "Windows API".

    Yes, and we have a separate forum for it as well (Windows Programming).

    The MSDN has all the documentation for the Windows API.
