GUI and multi-threading in c++

Jorgmen asked:

Open original thread
Hello everybody...
I have been using c++ for a while for console applications, but now I need to make a simulation of a soda factory, implementing multi-threading and GUI.

I was using Dev c++ for console apps, and I tried to install some dev-packs for multi-threading and GUI development as GTK+ or QT, but I can't make the libs work and also the compiler and the linker seems to have troubles, I have MinGW instaled. I read some forums and the people say that dev c++ is not good for gui development, so i tried Code::Blocks but i got the same result.

install the libs is such a pain for both softwares, is it realy necessary? or...
Other software could be better for do this work?
Visual Studio or QT plataform SDK, ?

I need your advice in order to choose a software for developing the project.
I need multi-threading support and GUI.

thanks for your help, and sorry for my English, is not my home language.
