    Windows app without console

    Hi, I'm new to win32 and I wanted to know how you could create a windows program without the console window showing up as well.

    Link has pictures for creating a Win32 application with Borland and MSVC++ compilers. But seeing as you didn't specify your compiler/IDE, we really don't know how to help you, however it is normally pretty self explanitory with whatever IDE you may be using

    I also had the same problem when I first started programing, that can be fixed by setting your project settings from "Console Application" to "Windows Application".
    In Dev-C++: Project->Project Options.

    Visual C++: Add /SUBSYSTEM:WINDOWS to the linker options.

    Dev-C++: Add -mwindows to the linker options.
