recently i was reading a tutorial about the ole api and i think i managed to get through the whole tutorial but when i try to use some of the functions the tutorial uses like oleuninitialize then i get an error saying undefined reference i would like to know what exactly i'm missing.
these files are supposed to be defined in windows.h from what the tutorial said. and i'd also like to know is there any way to turn ur custom defined window into a explorer like window so that when someone drops a file onto it, the icon of the file will be displayed on the window just like its done on the desktop. if you could provide any tutorials which would teach me this that would be great. thanks

1. You didn't mention which tutorial you read, so we don't know whether it was any good or just some 10+ year old hack for an older operating system.
2. You didn't say which OS/Compiler you're using now.
3. You didn't show us the code you tried.
