Here is what you need.
You just need to take one more step to make the Win32 template work in express. You need to edit the corewin_express.vsprops file (found in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\VCProjectDefaults) and change the string that reads:



AdditionalDependencies="kernel32.lib user32.lib gdi32.lib winspool.lib comdlg32.lib advapi32.lib shell32.lib ole32.lib oleaut32.lib uuid.lib"

lol, Konfusius, thats not it, you don't know how sick I am of that page by now lol! Could my problem just be that I installed the psdk first?

Step 1. Install Visual C++ 2005 Express.
If you haven't done so, install Visual C++ 2005 Express by following the instructions here.

Step 2. Install the Microsoft Platform SDK.

I might have to reinstall windows again, then make sure I put vc2005 in first, I've already tried reinstalling vc2005 and the psdk.
