Well, the VC help has got several drawbacks:
1. It is available only if you buy VC (duh!)
2. It is static (not updated).
3. In versions 5 and 6 it is HUGE and SLOW.

You can find the help online (adresses points 1 and 2) at http://premium.microsoft.com/msdn/library (note that it requires a one-time registration process that is free and takes a couple of minutes).

You can also download the WIN32 docs as a winhelp file (adresses points 1 and 3) from http://www.inprise.com/devsupport/borlandcpp/patches/BC52HLP1.ZIP (it does not document all the latest bells and whistles though).

Between your compiler's help, the winhelp file and the MSDN site you'll be covered.

By the way, this question should have been posted to the windows programming area because it has nothing to do with the C language.
