    What is the difference between normal programming and .NET programming

    Usually we write code in notepad and compile it to an exe ,
    But i don't know anything about .NET programming

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Thanks , i did that a couple of times but could not narrow it down to what i saw somewhere ,
    At one place i saw some people developing a payroll application with .NET , and i don't have much clue about the language used , but it had a MS Access database .

    If i wanted to learn to code something like that , where would i start ??

    Decide which of the many .NET languages you want to use the top two are Visual Basic and C#.

    Programming is programming. .NET is a platform, similar in many respects to the Java platform. The web is another. But no matter what platform you choose, there are fundamentals that apply across the board: software architecture, engineering, and design approaches and trade-offs. Without any study at hand to back it up, I will say "the industry" is focused on C#, Java, and C++. Python seems to be increasingly used as well. But really, there are no fundamentally new or different breakthroughs in any of those languages that weren't invented 30 years ago or more, in languages that have not been adopted for widespread use in industry. So I would say that the difference between "normal" programming and dependence on "platform X" is that there is really no difference at all, other than the choice to use that platform to deploy your application.

    Through the Tiobe Index you might get an idea of their definition of what is a programming language and also of what are the most used/popular programming languages.
    See:
    Programming Languages Definition | TIOBE - The Software Quality Company
    and
    TIOBE Index | TIOBE - The Software Quality Company

    Current top 5:
    Jave, C, C++, Python and C#
