    We used Programming Microsoft® Visual C++®, Fifth Edition (http://www.microsoft.com/mspress/books/1598.asp) in college... It's pretty good, although the title should probably rather say "Programming Microsoft® MFC with Visual C++®, Fifth Edition"... It covers MFC* pretty well.

    *MFC is Microsoft Foundation Class(es). It's an object model that wraps the Windows API functions, making it IMHO much easier (puriste win API programmers would probably disagre!)to write windows applications, or at least less time consuming.

    I personally use QUE books whenever possible. It was one of thier books that taught me absolutely everything I know about HTML. I found it very easy to read, very informative, and it covered a lot of material quicky. The same is true for most of thier books. I look for them whenever I'm not looking for a specific author

    One site i didnt see mentioned is www.winprog.org they have a huge tutorial on win32 programing with C, but can very easily be applyed to C++

    I learned C in College but not the whole language because I was an EET (electronics Enginerring) sutdent. But we only made DOS applications, and small ones at that. So I was disapointed as I wanted to make profecional GUI apps that everyone else was makeing. So I found the tutorial at www.winprog.org and that gave me the start I needed.

    I would recomend you get a hold of the latest version of the Win32 programers refernce. You can grab a copy here http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~lcc-win32/ or frequently make visits to MSDN (microsoft development network) msdn.microsoft.com

    However the compiler in the link for lcc wont compile C++ so be aware of that, but the Win32 documentation can be downloaded there.

    Mostly if you know C++ already then Win32 will be prity simple.
