Special Compiler for win app's
I have been programming C++ for a few weeks now, and I find it necessary in my next project (a login program for win 9x) to make a windows based program. I have all the necessary tutorials, but I need to know if i need to have a certain compiler. I know that Visual C++ will make windows for me, but i don't have 100 bucks right now. So, what i do have is the free borland c++ compiler 5.5. I would like to know if that will compile programs correctly if they were written as windows applications. Or if there is some sort of command i have to use with it to do so. If the borland compiler i have won't compile for windows, could you tell me of a compiler that will. Thank you very much.
