    Programming for windows is a different beast altogether - you
    will need to know how to use the windows API to be able
    to load windows, watch for mouse activity etc. One of the mods
    here runs a site that teaches some of the basics of this type of
    thing, sticking to the more familiar console style programs - check it out .

    then you'll need MSDN

    lastly, for graphics programming, you'll need either directX or
    OpenGL - for the latter try this

    Also check out the windows programming board, I'm sure they
    have a lot of good references. Be warned however, there is
    a lot of work involved in writing a program with a nice GUI
    No No's:
    fflush (stdin); gets (); void main ();

    Example of fgets (); The FAQ, C/C++ Reference

    My Gear:
    OS - Windows XP
    IDE - MS Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition

    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI

    Another good tutorial is The Forger's Tutorial.

    Then when you feel you're ready... when you're comfortable with standard C++, get Programming Windows, by Charles Petzold.
