Hi :)

I want to start creating windows applications. Can you tell me what editor is best to do this & if I can just start coding right away or do I need to download libraries etc to do it?

I am using Eclipse is this the best editor to use or are there better editors when 1st learning windows(...win32??) programming?

what is your reason for win32 programming, why dont you program in .net?

Code::Blocks with MinGW is my choice.

.NET is like asking someone to commit suicide. It's a bloated piece of crap.

Welcome to Win32 :) As long as your compiler/IDE supports Win32, and has all the includes (windows.h, etc.) It'll work. In my opinion the best compiler is Code::Blocks (http://www.codeblocks.org/)

if I can just start coding right away or do I need to download libraries etc

probably not :)

Hope I helped :)
