    Good for win API tutorials and even goes out of the way to comment on DevC++ specific stuff.

    At the risk of appearing as a blatant self-publicist you may wish to check out my wee humble website:

    But for a very thorough and well written discussion I would really recommend the Forger's tutorials:

    as they are very good.

    If you have not already done so I would also recommend going to and getting the latest stable edition of MinGW (295.3, I think but I believe they may have packaged it up as MinGW 1.1). Note that the directory structure used by DevC++ does NOT follow that of MinGW. This upgrade should not be immediately essential as you can still compile simple win32 progs with the 295.2 (std DevC) release.

    Good luck.
