I''ve made a template for my works, and have a initwindow() function like this
BOOL InitWindow(void)

	wc.cbSize			= sizeof(wc);
	wc.style			= CS_HREDRAW | CS_VREDRAW;
	wc.lpfnWndProc		= WndProc;
	wc.cbClsExtra		= 0;
	wc.cbWndExtra		= 0;
	wc.hInstance		= hInstance;
	wc.hIcon			= LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);
	wc.hCursor			= LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW);
	wc.hbrBackground	= (HBRUSH) GetStockObject(WHITE_BRUSH);
	wc.lpszMenuName		= NULL;
	wc.lpszClassName	= szAppName;
	wc.hIconSm			= LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);


	return 0;
and i use it before creating window
	if (!InitWindow())
		MessageBox(NULL, "Initialization Failed", "Error", MB_OK | MB_ICONERROR);
		return 0;
and i got a initialization error, could you guys help me to solve it? thanks

You return 0 every time, so your if(!InitWindow) is true every time. Check the return value of RegisterClassEx() and return false if it fails, otherwise return true. And change the return type to bool.

bool InitWindow(...)
// ...initialization here
// if registration fails...
return false;
// otherwise we''re good to go
return true;
