    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).

    But no, I don't think that it's necessary for you to be a genius to code, but average intelligence and hard work can only bring you so far. The brighter, math-savvy people are almost always going to become the master programmers if they're so inclined to elevate themselves to that height.

    As for myself, like my Old Man use to say, I'm a jack-of-all-trades and a master of none -

    Dev-C++ include files are under the include folder of the Dev-C++ program directory e.g. C:\Dev-Cpp\include. Check that windows.h is there, in Dev-C++ it is only 3kb or so as it mainly includes alot of other larger files (e.g. winbase.h). 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.
    long time no C; //seige
    You miss 100% of the people you don't C;
    Code:
    if (language != LANG_C && language != LANG_CPP)
        drown(language);
