    Smile VC++ Express Edition

    Hi, everyone..
    I am new in programming. I have a little experience with Turbo Pascal and C which was 12 years ago. I have downloaded VC++ Express Edition and I am having trouble with how the libraries work in C++. Whenever I use the Express, it always sets to Console application with precompiled files and the program body is automatic to include stdafx which really confuses me because I can't seem to run any other program than the Hello World.
    I am missing something here, huh?
    Please help.. Thanks..

    Depends on the type of project you first create. If you select General->Empty Project then you won't have any of that extra stuff.

    Once you've got a new empty project created, you can right click on that project in the window on the left that list all the projects in your current solution and go to Add->New Item->Code/C++ File (.cpp) then type in a name for the source file you are going to create (make sure the location box under where you input the source file name indicates the correct directory, the one named after the project you just created). After that, your source file will be created and you can start typing code into it.
