    Depends......

    I have VC++ so I use MFC for GUI stuff (even though I call a lot of APIs directly)

    API calls for most simple stuff........

    Try a little ATL now and again....

    I think its ActiveX Template Library...

    Basically its a set of C++ templates & tools that allow you to create functional COM programs....

    I selected API because I'm trying to teach myself to program for Windows with Petzold's book (I love it so far, I actually get it!)
