    What, exactly, are you struggling with?

    I have used VS C++ quite a bit, so I can probably explain, if you explain what the problem is. There is also extensive built in help.

    You need a "project" first of all. This is a collection of source and header files [it can be one single source file if you want it to be - technically you can even have a project with NO files - but it's kind of like having a directory on C: with nothing in it - it's only useful if you plan to put things in it later on].

    Select the "new project" and then select "Win32 application". You then give it a name. Click OK.

    Once you have your Win32 application project, you need to select a few other things. To make it easy, let's start with a "Console Application". This setting is on the "second tab" on the project settings Window. Once you've selecte "Console App", you can click OK here too.

    Now you should have a pane on the left side of the window where you have include and source files, and you should find a "proj.cpp" file [where "proj" is the name of your project]. This file contains your "main" [called _tmain so that because it's supporting both ANSI and Unicode text encoding].
