Hi there Smile | :)

If you want to learn VC++, I would like to make a suggestion to you, and to all other aspiring C++ gurus.
Learn C first. Get a foundation in C, understand the basic theory of memory management, pointers and structures.
Once you've done that, learn C++ (without MFC or Win32 API). Make sure you understand classes, inheritance, polymorphism, encapsulation etc. Write a lot of basic C++ code, testing all the principles that you need to learn.
And only then jump into MFC and Win32 coding.

Why this long winded route? Because if you understand the foundations, the more complex stuff will be more accessible and comprehensible to you. No point in starting with the roof when building a house, right?

Take care
