    Old articles

    There used to be a series of articles at:
    adrianxw.dk Win32 Tutorials Home
    However that link no longer works.

    Is the series still available and if so can you provide a new link.

    Thanks

    Apparently, the site is no longer up. Also, adrianxw hasn't logged on here in over eight years. There seem to be plenty of other tutorial around for this, though.

    Try the web archive (wayback machine). I'm not sure how many levels of this are backed up. Example link:

    A valid point. There may be a reason why the OP really has to use the Win-API directly, but more likely than not he's probably just not aware that there are superior alternatives. There's very little that can't be done much more comfortably (and portably) in Qt.
