just go to file-->new... under the project tab, select MFC AppWizard(exe), type in the project name click "OK", select "Dialog Based", and press "Finish"

now you should see a WYSIWYG dialog editor, right click on the "TODO: Place dialog controls here.", select properties and change the caption to "Hello World!" compile, build and run!!! (press CTRL+F5)... there you go... I guess that's the simplest hello world i've ever think of!...

if you felt it is too easy... try to mess up with the dialog class, put message using the built in message box: MessageBox(...), or AfxMessageBox(...)

u can start with running the VC++, File-> New ->Projects, choose MFC AppWizard(exe), choose a name for the project then OK, choose Dialog Based and finish.

check on the classView (left tab control), u have 3 classes which were created automatically by thee wizard.
CAboutDlg, App class and Dlg class.

check on the resourceView->Dialog, open your dialog (not the IDD_ABOUTBOX) u can put controls like in VB and work with them inside your dialog class.

post your e-mail address and i'll send u a sample code

dear deschen

Since u admit u r newer to C++ may i ask u to get urself used to C++ and its concepts.C++ is the underlying language for all MFC and Windows Programming.
 
There is a book by Herbert Schildt "COmplete Reference C++" thats a good book to get urself accustomed with C++.When u finish that book u will find it very easy to move on to VC++.

When Coming to VC++ b4 we prceed in to programming u need to get familiarized with the VC++ IDE and various tools avbl.

Then enter into VC++ by knowing abt Windows ,Windows Messages,System Messages ..how they r sent and all those.

Then start with various sttuff like GDI resources etc ..As u know VB u will be aware of various controls can be used.Learn abt using them in VC++

After this u can move to MFC where u find all things much simpler than Windows SDK (Actual VC++)

Good Luck

YES,I agree with MaheshSundararaman
The knowledge of C/C++ is needed before U "new a VC project".
Without it,U will find it's a lair!
VC is so complex,U DO can not study the C/C++ language and the VC IDE and the SAME TIME!

The best book I've found for kick starting yourself into VC++ is:

Beginning Visual C++6 by Ivor Horton (Wrox Press).

It starts you off with the basics of Pointers, References, Classes,Constructors & Destructors and takes you right through to a quite complicated MDI application.

Working through this book would be an excellent start.
