C++ answer:

#include <iostream.h>

int main()
{
    cout << "hello world!";
    return 0;
}


C answer:

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
    printf("hello world!");
    return 0;
}

The above code from yonat should be OK, if you you have set the program type to Win32 console and run it under Windows95/NT. For creating a real GUI Windows app, you should include <windows.h> and use WinMain() as your startup function. There should be a lot of examples around. Go to any book store you'll find one.

i grade KW's answer good, because for an excellent there should be comments what some of those lines do in code?

like :

PAINTSTRUCT ps;  // this is xxxx.

but that example did work, and im very pleased.
