    funny thing i wanted to share

    i've been prgramming a while now and using dev-c++ as my IDE. i wanted to get into windows programming and vc express is presumably the best choice. i downloaded it and set the compiler up and linked everything it should need for all the programs i've done. since i'm more familiar with dev-c++ i wrote a windows programm in there, got it to run, and moved it over to vc express. set up a new project and tried to run it. i got an error 'cannot link <windows.h>' i checked again and that header is there but express can't seem to see it.

    windows is so confidant that people will use their software that they make their own app creating software harder to use than free stuff. anyway, funny to me. i think i'll stick with bloodshed dev.

    You probably don't have the windows SDK installed and properly set up for with VC++. Don't blame the IDE/Compiler for your mistake .
