    Which header files are you missing?

    If you are trying code from old tutorials/books, then maybe the headers that are missing aren't supposed to be there at all. For example, you should be using <iostream> not <iostream.h>.

    AFAIK, IDEs don't come with DirectX or OpenGL. You have to get those yourself.

    Please do not be impatient. Your problem is not urgent or requiring special attention. What Windows headers are missing? Give us some specific examples. We can't just give you header files, there might be imporatant libraries missing as well.

    dude, have a bit more patience!

    the express edition of VS2005 doesn't come with the Platform SDK. You need to download that puppy. It's free, but I hope you got broadband!

    The header files you want aren't included by default in the first place. You need to download DX/OGL libraries or the Platform SDK for what you want.
