Is there a way to create a project of type 'Win32 Application' in VS2005 Epxress? The option is greyed out from one of the dialog boxes... does this mean it is impossible to create them?

Go to the VStudioExpress website and look for the install instructions. There you will find how to install the platform SDK and how to enable the Win32 apps option.

Luck!

Thanks for the information.

I downloaded the platform SDK, installed it, and -- there was no change. :(

Is there another step I have to take? Here is the download/instruction page: here.
