    I suggest perhaps you forget about all this SDL nonsense and stick to basics until you feel more comfortable.

    Maybe try to draw stuff with the windows.h header file (there's tutorials for this) or conio.h (there's tutorials for that too I think).

    You need to create a project first, and then insert the source files. VC++ cannot (at least not in any obvious way I've ever discovered) simply coompile source files.

    Alternatively, you could compile from the comamnd line.

    The executable is located somewhere in the folder tree of the project you created. Probably inside the debug folder (or release folder if you are building a release version).
