    Windows GUI

    What header file (I'm assuming that's what I use) should I include to make my program run in the Windows enviroment, rather than DOS?

    I'm new to C++, so maybe this kind of thing is too advanced for me, but I would like to learn if possible. Thank you.

    (I am using MS VC++)

    MFC

    Using MS VC++, you would most likely use the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) to create GUI's. I would recommend staying away from GUI's until you are more experienced with C++ though.

    Guess what you are already running your programs in windows ,not does. that screen that looks like dos is actuly some thing know as a console window.

    But you probbly are thinking about the window gui, you need to hold that off for a while.

    Oh yea that header file is "windows.h"

    On the mfc thing: MFC is a C++ class wrapper for the windows API. When you go into windows gui programming learn the windows API first then MFC.
