I am currently attempting to program my first game in C++ using Microsoft Visual Studios Express 2005. After doing some research, I found that it is missing several packages including the one that I need (windows.h). That's free software for ya.
Anyways, I was having trouble finding a way to add it to my library and was wondering if anyone could point me in a direction that gives step by step directions.
I am also looking into buying new software.... any recommendations?
Thanks for the input everyone.
