    Making A Program

    I can make decent programs in C++ at the moment, but they only run in a command prompt window.

    Does anyone know how I can make a proper program with it's own icon? Like Microsoft word ext rather than just unorganized applications.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I guess you mean a program with a GUI?
    I'd recommend trying out win32 http://www.winprog.org/tutorial/ at first, just so that you get a good idea of how it operates on a lower level. Don't bother going past those tutorials though. Once you understand how the GUI operates move onto to something like MFC, or check out Qt which is cross-platform and has a GUI designer if you're feeling lazy.

    Thanks, I didn't even know what it was called, so you've helped me a lot.
