I have Visual Studio 6, but Im having a hard time figuring out what type of program to choose for making a console app. I know to choose Win32 Console app, but then it asks what kind. It know its not a blank one, but what about the others? I reading C++ for dummies.

Just make a blank one and add a source file to it. The blank projects typically have less (frequently annoying) ''features'' automatically setup for you in my experience.

Or you can just choose a Simple program which creates the main cpp file for you. Then you should go to Project->Project Settings->Link tab, then go to where it says Project Options, and in the box you should see "/Yu stdafx". Highlight that, then delete it. Then go to the workspace and delete stdafx.h and stdafx.cpp from it. And in the CPP that was created for you delete the line that says

  #include "stdafx.h"
