    Question Gdi

    Hello Everyone,

    I have a good one. I probably should already know this stuff but I don't. The question is I am trying to display an image and I read up on the gdi image and graphics classes. I am getting a little lost when trying to sort out all this SDK, GDI+ stuff. I wrote a small piece of code to display an image, but I don't know whether I have the right stuff installed. I'm running Visual C++ 6.0 on XP and try to add gdiplus.h to my #include statement and get told that it does not exist. Is there something I need to get and does anyone have any references so that I can become clear on understanding all these addins, developer kits that are supposed to be installed to get functionality, extra libraries, etc. I'm trying to get a grip of that angle and get frustrated when I try to write something that will not work because the Development Environment does not have the appropriate additions. Help Me Please! How do I know what additions are out and what additions I need to make to Visual C.

    Thank you
    Kendal

    Windows specific questions should go on this message board.
    You need a good Windows programming book I think. "gdiplus.h" is not a standard-windows header file.
