The aim of this Get Started series is to teach you how to write a desktop program in C++ using Win32 and COM APIs.
In the first module, you'll learn step-by-step how to create and show a window. Later modules will introduce the Component Object Model (COM), graphics and text, and user input.
For this series, it is assumed that you have a good working knowledge of C++ programming. No previous experience with Windows programming is assumed. If you are new to C++, you can find learning material at the Visual C++ Developer Center. (This resource may not be available in some languages and countries.)
In this section
|Introduction to Windows Programming in C++||This section describes some of the basic terminology and coding conventions used in Windows programming.|
|Module 1. Your First Windows Program||In this module, you will create a simple Windows program that shows a blank window.|
|Module 2. Using COM in Your Windows Program||This module introduces the Component Object Model (COM), which underlies many of the modern Windows APIs.|
|Module 3. Windows Graphics||This module introduces the Windows graphics architecture, with a focus on Direct2D.|
|Module 4. User Input||This module describes mouse and keyboard input.|
|Sample Code||Contains links to download the sample code for this series.|

How to create a sample program that demonstrates GDI graphics in the context of the game engine. Graphics Essentials. Before jumping into the details of how graphics work in Windows and how they are applied to games, it's important to establish some ground rules and gain an understanding of how computer graphics work in general.
Is there any C++ GUI API?
My answer is MANY.
There are many API's for making GUI applications.
Here are some.
1. WinAPI: (C based)(MFC is C++ based)
Its a great API and the best solution if you are windows programmer. First code will look a bit difficult, but later (after making few apps.) you will see its not so rusty. I like it, because you can do almost everything with it (in windows). The only bad thing is, that you cannot make applications for Linux with it.
2. Qt4 / Qt3 (C++ based)
This is a nice API, for making GUI applications. It works under Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. Its really easy to learn and use. But, until you dont buy licenced version, you will need to add tons of -dll s, to run your application. Qt compiler doesnt work in Vista. And, Qt4 API has a bit complicated way, to get buttons to work, if button holds some more complicated operations(actually you have to make your own SLOT's).
3.GTK+ (C based)
Sorry, but I never tryed it, so Google might help you.

Dev c++ windows 10 compile error. When I compile it works fine, but when I compile and run it says source file not compiled. So I googled buncha things and came across this video on youtube which shows you how to fix it. I also saw other forums on google which suggest the same thing. However, after doing whats asked, Now I can't even compile my code. I get this error. Apr 27, 2013 Thank you! I am disappointed to hear that Bloodshed Dev-C is dead, but thanks for the other options:).

I also think newbies dont know for C++ IDE's. (Developing Enviroviment).
Dev C++ Code Examples
I will make a short description of some
1. Visual Studio 2005 (Visual C++)
This is a beautiful IDE for making console and win32 GUI applications. You can also compile DirectX10 or 9 projects as well. I didn't test it for compiling Qt or GTK+ applications yet.
Affcourse as a Microsoft product isn't free, but it seems to be really safe and stable IDE for Windows Applications.
I really like it, and I recommend it to everyone.
More info '>HERE
Great for compiling WinAPI, Qt, GTK+, WXWidgets, Ogre, D, C++ console, C console and other projects. I found some bugs, and sometimes there are problems to compile.
It's one of the best FREE IDE's.
Information and download '>HERE
This IDE, written in Delphi is the right place for beginners. It isn't perfect and it allows you 'holes' and 'bugs' in your program.Thats why its good for beginners. VS2005 wouldnt compile most of the code, which Dev-C++ does.
Information and Download '>HERE
SOME LINUX IDE's:
Ah, and dont take care about all off my opinions. I prefer VS2005, but If you dont have a money, than choose Code::Blocks or Dev-C++.
I hope moderators will make this topic sticky (read me)
I hope this helps
