I don't know that it's going to be possible to do with Dev C++ (which is outdated as it is, and won't offer you a GUI designer nor the .NET libraries). Grab the VC++ 2010 Express Edition. The dialect used in this case is C++/CLI and is probably not a good entry point into C++, IMHO. If you want to use Dev, you'd probably have to use the Win32 API. See something like for details on that.
