    	fpout=fopen(FOUT,"w");
    	if(!fpin) return 0;
    	if(!fpout) return 0;

    Mis-spelled #defines perhaps?
    Do you even have FIN ?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

        wc.cbWndExtra    = 0;// Amount of extra data allocated in memory per window of this type. Usually 0. 
        wc.hInstance     = hInstance;// Handle to application instance (that we got in the first parameter of WinMain()).

        wc.hCursor       = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW);// Cursor that will be displayed over our window. 
        wc.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)(COLOR_WINDOW+1);// Background Brush to set the color of our window.
