Well, the example given isn't really programming (or coding) per say, you're simply compiling a template for a simple window (The example folder has some other useful progs in there as well which one could use as a starter).

As for myself, like my Old Man use to say, I'm a jack-of-all-trades and a master of none -
Ah, I just love programming. :P I'm good at math, but I just have fun programming anything :D

You probably should make sure that all the files that windows.h is including are there. If you installed Dev-C++ correctly though, you should not have this problem and should only get the file not found error message when you try to read abstract files off the file system.
Are the braces all in the correct places?
