    Unfortunately Qt is a bit tricky to learn too... especially if one has not got a complete concept of OOP ...and its build process...is a bit whacky //(..especially if you want to separate the gui part of code from the rest)!
    I was searching for some simpler ones...but none seems satisfactory

    Slow and Steady wins the race... if and only if :
    1.None of the other participants are fast and steady.
    2.The fast and unsteady suddenly falls asleep while running !

    Yes, all GUI frameworks have some trickiness associated with it. But the same applies to Win32, so they're not exactly at a disadvantage.
    Win32 is really hard to mater, and it involves writing a lot of code to get something done. Number of are huge.
    A framework may be a little slow to get started with, but once you get into it, it gets much easier than Win32.

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

    Ideally, after this everything will be fine. But C++ can be a tricky language for newbies. If you are still content with this (seeking help a little now and then), then C++ is fine.

    Now, I really suggest you drop the Win32 API tutorial and go download Qt. It's written for C++, it's portable and it's a heck of a lot simpler than the Win32 API (which is a mess).
    Thank you, that's a big help. I have just scanned a bit about QT on wikipedia and it sounds like that will be just the ticket. Cheers!
