Last time you help me but you forget to mention
the title of the book.

tanc02 - what other info do you need.

    My recommendation is buy Petzold book as outlined above.  Probably 80% of Windows C
    Programmers learned using this book (or older editions which cover Win3.1 etc)

    This contains all the info you need to get started.

    You will also need a compiler.  Buy Microsoft Visual C++ if you don't have one.  This is the best choice
    for a beginner as you will find the most books available for it (especially books orientated towards
    straight API calls, rather using a class library like MFC).

    The reason nobody can give you a simple answer how to use the Windows API is because there are
    several hundred API calls and the documentation is hundreds or thousands of pages (you get electronic
    version of this with Visual C++).  Petzold book starts of with a Windows "Hello World" type program,
    and this is even 100 lines.


I hope this will remind you
can you give me the title of that book
