Yes, but it rather depends whether you want to get the programs written
or sit down and learn the ins and outs of 'C'.

Most text-books do it the hard way but there's a short easy course:


That gets you there all on grassy slopes with no hills!

Wow! thanks for all the help, I've sorted that program now!

Is there anywhere online where I can read up on how to write windows programs? I'm not a huge microsoft fan, but console programs get on my nerves...All I can make is a message box or blank window:/

Thanks Again,

If you want to start coding in Windows format, I suggest starting with MicrosoftFoundationClasses(MFC). I know it is easy to create an MFC project with VisualStudios, Im not sure about Dev. You can also search for Windows API material, that should get you started in the right direction.
