    Basic Windows Programming

    If I want to create Windows programs (not shell consoles) what do I need to do? Is Visual C++ required? My compiler(Dev-C++) has a template for making a windows programming but I can seem to write anything in the window. Does anyone know of a good tutorial for this, or could you post an example or soemthing to get me started.

    Thanks

    A windows program is much different than a console program. For a good tutorial check out the Forgers tutorial at http://www.winprog.org/tutorial/
