    You should start with a console application. It's better for learning the basics like conditional statements, loops, classes, etc...

    I'm convinced these are the worst tutorials ever created.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void J(char*a){int f,i=0,c='1';for(;a[i]!='0';++i)if(i==81){
    puts(a);return;}for(;c<='9';++c){for(f=0;f<9;++f)if(a[i-i%27+i%9
    /3*3+f/3*9+f%3]==c||a[i%9+f*9]==c||a[i-i%9+f]==c)goto e;a[i]=c;J(a);a[i]
    ='0';e:;}}int main(int c,char**v){int t=0;if(c>1){for(;v[1][
    t];++t);if(t==81){J(v[1]);return 0;}}puts("sudoku [0-9]{81}");return 1;}

    ...am new to this... and made a window application...
    There are no windows or graphics in ANSI/ISO Standard C++. All this is done with additional libraries and is "above and beyond" the underlying language. Not a problem for your compiler... Dev-C++ uses the WinAPI library.

    But, there's still a lot to learn. Most people spend a few months to a year or more learning standard C++ before moving-on to Windows programming (or some other specialty topic).

    In any case, you need to know what is standard and what is specific to a particular platform/library.

    If you want to write Windows programs from day-one, there's always Visual BASIC.
