    There's this on (picked randomly from google so I'm not sure how good it is).

    As windows programming covers a large area, if you're serious then you'd probably be better off getting a book. The one by Petzold seems to be most peoples favourite.

    Get Programming windows by Charles Petzold

    or another goodie is

    Windows 98 Programming by Herb Schildt

    Both of these are good. Schildt is an excellent starter and its well laid out for future reference. Petzold is a bit more in depth and might be worth a look after Schildt (thats the order I read them in anyway).

    The most recent versions of each are easily available on Amazon.
