    Work through it slowly, chapter by chapter. Dont worry if you dont "get" things first time. Just go back and reread what didnt sink in the first time. Step thru the code in your debugger line by line so you get a picture of whats happening.Most of all...... dont panic.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!

    ?

    Is there anyway I can move the window creation stuff into another section so I don't have to see it every time... That throws me off... alot.

    yeah

    I know how you feel. Every time I see all that window creation code I collapse.

    hm....

    well, I did try and make it into two seperate functions WinMain and another function... That makes it a little clearer.
