If you want to try out MFC:
Here's how:
1. Make an MFC app.
2. Choose the "dialog based".
3. Pull a button onto the dialog.
4. Change it's name and double click it.
5. accept the "onButton" or whatever.
6. Enter your code. (example:)
  MessageBox (NULL, "Hi", "Bye", MB_OK);

Then there's the non dialog based MFC.
Here you need to add a "class" and "member variable" to your code, to manipulate your controls with MFC.
You either go to the MSDN tutorial on MFC. (It's on the CD or at http://msdn.microsoft.com)

Or DevCentral.com...

If you want to get more complicated,
go to http://www.codeguru.com
But only after you went thru a tutorial.

Enjoy. (You'll get more jobs knowing MFC).
