I am trying to create a simple window and then put a combo box in it. I have viewed many posts and tuorials, all of which are posing problems. I believe my problem is due to the fact that I am using a unix based compiler because I get a pretty "blah blah has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." when I try to run it through Visual C++ 6. Could someone please point me in the right direction if you have any ideas?
