hello,

graphics and window apps SHOULD be possible in any compiler or enviroment

however there may be an exception and I could be wrong

as far as graphics go I'm not too expierienced but I do know that the IDE by bloodshed

does support graphics

I can't help you much in the graphics department because I have yet to find a good lesson on them

I do know how to display image files but I have yet to learn how to render images

Now where I can help you out alot is window applications

window applications are possible using the Win32 API

I could go into a large deal about helping you but the best thing would be for you to go to :

http://www.winprog.org/tutorial/

This is the Forger's Win32 API Tutorial

This is the best API Tutorial I have come across

It explains alot (I wish it was around when I was learning the API =P)

If you have any problems completing the tutorial or come across to a difficult spot

let me know I will help you out

Just post a topic and I will respond to it

Now I would like to suggest bloodshed's IDE called

Bloodshed's Dev C++

It's a free compiler that does support graphics and windowed apps programming and has built in

compilers, linkers, and libraries

and it's just a really nice IDE (custom color coding options =P)

check it out at :

http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html

download version 5 beta =P

let me know what ya think
