This tutorial will show you how to setup your environment to program Win32 in C / C++.
Microsoft Visual Studio.NET
Visual Studio.NET (VS.NET) should already be installed. Open up VS.NET and click on File > New Project.
Enter a project name such as Test and click OK
Click Finish. If you do not see your Test project in a Solution Explorer window, click on View > Solution Explorer
Right-click on Source Files in the Solution Explorer and select Add > New Item
Dev-C++ should already be installed. I am using the Dev-C++ Version 5 beta. This can be downloaded from www.bloodshed.net
Click on File > New > Project
You will be presented with a file containing a number of lines of code. This code will be explained in a future tutorial. For now, click on Execute > Compile and then click Save to save your main.cpp file.
You should receive a blank window. Close the window to terminate the program.
You have successfully set up Dev-C++ to program Win32 in C++ and you now know how to start a new project.
Congratulations! You now know how to go about compiling your source files.
