Unfortunately, you won't get around that header file. Anyway, the programs created with MinGW should not behave different. Have yo ualready downloaded the free Visual Studio Express (http://www.microsoft.com/express/download/) and tried that one?

If you mean by that GUI toolkits, then there are plenty. Qt and wxWidgets for example are pretty well known.
