I've been reading quite a few threads about creating new files if one doesn't exist...but I need it specifically for windows, in the current directory we are in.

I've seen

ifstream file;
    cout<<"Tehleetness is busted!";
    cout<<"it work!!!!11!!!11!one!";


That's just checking to see if the file is there.

Later on I will need to read the file...but not yet.

Is this a question? The code that you have will indeed check if the file exists or not. To write to a file, you'd need a std::ofstream, but that's the only difference.

If you include the Common Language Runtime you can use the System namespace and the IO class, which includes the File class. Here's an example which works in VS2010:

#include "stdafx.h"

using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;

int main(array<System::String ^> ^args)
    String^ Test = Console::ReadLine();
    return 0;
