    You really don't want to be learning C++ is that is your only compiler.
    You'll have no idea whether any of the problems are down to you, or merely a buggy compiler.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    i have dev-c++ but i installed V5.0 but i hate V5.0
    V5.0 cant compile on my computer.
    i wanted to use vs 2005 because its more easy with creating graphical windows

    VS2005 is nice, but for learning C++ maybe it's a bit blown out of proportions. If you start a normal console project, you will have C++. Windowing elements will always be either MFC ( a window library that is built on top of Win32 ) or .NET which is managed C++. Managed C++ combines the power of C# with the user friendlyness of ASM. Not a good deal outside of specialized solutions.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Good one
    I've never used it; that __gc keyword looked too weird.

    I am having a problem with a basic windows GUI program. I am getting unresolved external errors for all api functions. I added the path to the platform sdk libs but that didn't help and I can't figure out how to add libs individually to a project. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    I think I figured out how it works now. Specify the lib path and add the lib name to the command line.
