    Step 1. Learn how to program in C:
    C book recommendations
    CBoard's C Tutorial
    Teach Yourself C in 21 Days

    Step 2. Learn how to program with Windows API:
    Forger's Win32 Tutorial
    CBoard's Window's Programming Links

    Step 3. After you complete step1 and step2 you should look at DirectX or OpenGL.

    Well, cross platform multimedia is still very much a matter of joke.
    Some good options, though, are:
    1. Follow AndrewHunter's "Step 1"
    2.Get a good library to abstract the mess away from you.(eg: GTK3, SDL or at a lower level OpenGL).
