Crash course in VC++?

P: n/a
Anyone know of a good, quick, and, dirty tutorial for using Visual C++
to create windows apps? I'm taking a C++ programming course and I want
to turn in my next lab assignment as a windows app to impress the
professor. So far we have been using a command line compiler to get
the assignments done (boring!!)

Thanks for any help that you can give.

If any of that is available, 'microsoft.public.vc.language' would be
a much better place to ask about it. Just a thought...

C++ != Windows programming. If you are taking a (standard) C++
programming course, you are more likely to lose points if you use
non-standard facilities.

If you really want to master C++, learn to use its standard features
first. Then you'll be able to use that knowledge and work with 3rd
party libraries, such as the win32 api.

If you already have Visual C++ available there are a number of
tutorials in the MSDN help libraries that come with it. Alternatively
you might find these on http://msdn.microsoft.com.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

I was also in a position like you,
try JUCE <http://www.rawmaterialsoftware.com/juce/>. I dont think there
is any thing simpler than this.
- UI looks cool,
- easy to program
- Cross compiles on Mac/Windows/Linux
- Also it is free (GPL I guess).
