Hi guys, i have been interested in learning windows programming for a while now. I just havent gotten around to getting a good book. I was supposed to get a book relating to C++ encryption and programming for Xmas but for some reason its no longer available so now i can get another book and was hoping someone could give me some good suggestions. I have (what i feel) a good understanding of C++ as far as console apps go but have only done a couple online tuts for Windows programming. So a beginner book would suit me well . Thanks for any suggestions you guys can offer, i appreciate it!
