Well, I can't answer you such big question in this post. You have to choose first a development tool, ideal would be Microsoft Visual C++ or Borland C++ Builder, but if you can't pay for it, you can get Dev-C++ for free, in last case, you will need a GUI library to make things easier, could be wxWindows (Visual C++ has MFC and C++ Builder has OWL, already).
The GUI library of every compiler will facilitate you the development of a graphical application, including everything concerning mouse handling.

Turbo C++? from Borland Museum? I guess you are refering to DOS applications.
Maybe these previous answers could help you:
