    Dev C++ Problem

    I am trying to create a Win32 program in dev c++ and for some reason when I create a resource file it doesn't create a header. They guy in the tutorial says that it is supposed to. Also he says to choose win32 as my project bu there is no win32 option when i create a new project

    By this I hope you mean console.....if not, then you will have to do more than that to make it work. Also, Win32 means Windows. The 32 means 32-bit, but not of much importance right now.

    in Dev-C++ you have to make your own resource headers. The only thing for resources Dev-C++ does is include a cheap visual editor.

    but when i

    edit the resource file isn't it supposed to create a header. If not then how would I go about doing that. Would anyone recommend that I get VC++.

    Like I said before, I hope you mean win32 console. Console programs do not use resource files. Only Windows Apps use them.

    I would, VC++ has many, many nifty little features that come in handy......

    However, you can use a third party resource editor like Resource Tuner , but it's not free..... anyone know of a free, and quality resource editor?

    look dude, it's not hard to make a resource header

    here is a simple one:

    Code:
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////
    // Resource.h
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////
    
    #define MENU 1000
    then in your resource file include resource.h
