Ok, I'm a fairly experienced programmer in various languages, but am now trying to turn my hand to windows programming in C / C++.
My application is currently written in java, but that is proving to be too slow, so I intend to migrate to C / C++.
First up, apologies for what is likely to be a spate of silly questions while I find my feet!
Right, I hate paying for anything if I can help it, so I'm looking for an open source / shareware / freeware IDE and compiler setup. I have tried Quincy which seemed a little lightweight and I am now trying out lcc-win32.
Unfortunately, I can't get the resource editor to work. If I open what claims to be the editor, none of the resources shows and if I attempt to add, say a dialog, the whole application crashes!
So, I'm either looking for one of the following:-
- Another integrated IDE (free) that does work properly.
- A stand-alone resource editor (again free) which can save as a .rc file and create the associated header file.
- A really good tutorial on how to create resource files from scratch.
Over to you guys!
Cheers and TIA,
