I would suggest Microsoft Visual Studio (if you're on windosws) or Dev-CPP, although it's harder. The Visual Studio has the headers and libraries included.

Firstly, if I may ask, which version of Visual Studio are you using - 2005 or 2008?

Secondly, which files is the compiler complaining about the lack of, specifically?

[edit] I just read another thread of yours, which indicates that you're using 2005; if this is the case, have you downloaded and installed the platform SDK?
