hey, i am having a problem with a program. See, i am a first-time programmer, so i got this book. It told me to use this for the opening: #include <windows.h> I am trying to write a simple windows 32 program using Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition. The program is fine except for when i try to execute it, it keeps telling me that there is no directory called "windows.h". the file tag was really long, so i changed it to "program.exe", but now it is telling me that the parameter is wrong. I don't know if it is completely wrong or not because the book uses just plain Microsoft Visual C++. Is there any way i can fix it, or should i just download that? and if so, than where can i get it?

If I understood you correctly, your problem is that Visual C++ Express doesn't come with the standard Windows headers. To get them, download and install the Platform SDK.
