It's part of the MSDN documentation library.
I am not sure how a library could help you.
Originally (DOS days) I would write a graphics library that contained blitting of tiles, flipping and VR retrace routines but now (with DirectX) you don't have to worry about this. So all that's really left is to actually write the main game loop. (Ok, you still need some file, memory and error handling primatives that could be put into a library).
But anyway check out the above sample code to see what I mean.
