    Guys, i could partly understand the answers by freddie and Elysia,
    I am not masocist trying to work with such a dated compiler. i have learned a lot of features of C and some of C++ and have been active on writing algorithms for some relatively challenging problems (not too advanced ones) and suddenly decided to give beautiful graphics interface to my programs, nothing else.
    Again i partly understood your answers, forgive me but would you please simplify a little more?
    Thanks again for understanding, i just pity not reading this book. maybe after a couple of tries and results i will feel more confident.
    In short, i just want to modernize the apperenace of my results.

    Summary: Regardless of what you want to do, you should always use the latest compiler. When reading books, you should always strive for a recent book. That's all.

    You might want to check this out from cplusplus.com - The C++ Resources Network...

    win32 v. MFC ? - C++ Forum

    Only about a month old, but FurryGuy went way above and beyond the call of duty in answering the question you seem to be posting. He provided examples using MFC, Win Api, and I think Win CLI or whatever. Also, some stuff of mine might be helpful...

    One other option - Code::Blocks. Brilliant IDE and using nightly builds
    is kept up to date frequently. Compiler is not included however so you will
    need to download and install one. It does accept almost all modern C, C++
    compilers. Worth a gander if anything else.

    thank you swgh, i am aware of that and i have code::block and use it from time to time. i actually dont know if it can be used to make GUI. everything i have made so far appears in command line and i am looking for other options.

    Other members suggested me visual c 2010 but i have not tried it yet and instead i am using visual c 6 just for the case of some familiarity and new experience. i should definitly upgrade sooner or later.

    You should be able to install Visual Studio Express 2010 in addition to Visual C/C++ 6. My guess is you'll need to use separate folders for VS 6 and VS 2010 projects/solutions.
