    I thought most recent compilers didn't compile programs in dos that much anymore. I thought they were all WIN32 console apps? Maybe I'm wrong.....

    DEV C++ from bloodshed...? Im pretty sure it programs in a WIN32 Console. It's not dos. If your a newb play around with the console and then goto the boxes n' stuff. DEV C++ can program the boxes n' stuff but you need to have a good understanding of how to program before you move into the funky window's apps. Learn how to use the console and then try your hand at the window's and boxes n' stuff... I could be wrong

    If you want to play around with a bare minimum windows application, use MSVC++ win32 application wizard. It has an option to create the Hello windows application. The code that it generates will be the bare minimum you will need to create a windows application.

    Just remember that it creates an application using the MFC class and not API Calls. Good luck!
