    C++ gui for windows where to start

    hi,

    i am new to the forum, and sorry if this is the right place to start this topic, i tried to use the search to find about this but i found many topics out of what i wanted.

    anyway, i am using Visual C++ and i would like to know if you guys could point me where to start to make the follow application:

    i want to make a messenger just like google talk but first i would like to start with the e-mail system it has that connects to the server and tell you the last few emails you received.

    If u guys could point me how to work with a gui for windows using visual c++ i would appreciate.

    so far i havent started yet, i know just the basic about c++ but i will learn

    regards,
    prix.

    Well, that's probably a relatively tall hill you want to climb.

    I'll be moving this to the windows forum, and then I'll be adding a link to Beej, the MSDN, and the RFCs.

    [edit]Oh, and of course, winprog.org.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*
