Unless you understand classes and inheritance very well, you aren't going to be able to program a graphical user interface, i.e. a windows program, using Visual C++. Windows programming with Visual C++ is another whole topic requiring you to digest another 800 page book before you can understand it.
I'm a newbie and finally somewhat understand how to code an application, but need to find out how to create a graphical interface for that application. I get tired of the old white text on black background thing.
