    Thumbs up Programming in Windows....????

    I would like to know what's the difference between writing in normal DOS and writing in Windows (exept ofcourse its a lot harder) and what you need to add.

    If you know a good tutorial, or can explain it to me, it would be much appreciated.

    Thankyou

    There are loads of differences...

    A lot more code for one, message based apps, Graphical interface......

    Check out Sunlight if you want to use a tut.

    Buy Petzold if you want to learn seriously.
