Welcome to Version 2.0 of theForger's Win32 API Tutorial

This tutorial attempts to get you started developing with the Win32 API as quickly and clearly as possible.
It's meant to be read as a whole, so please read starting from the beginning before asking questions about things you don't understand later on. Each section builds on the sections before it.

Download the complete example Source Code which is refered to throughout this document.

Feeling generous?

Donate with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure! You may use this tutorial for absolutely no charge, however there are costs associated with hosting it on the web. If you found it to be of use to you and want to give something back, I would be grateful for donations of any amount to help pay for this website. This page gets approximately 11 thousand hits a month, and it adds up after a while :)

Once again, there is absolutely no obligation to pay, and you won't get anything in addition to what's already here, but if you want to help out, that would be great... just click the PayPal image.

Enjoy the tutorial,

I would like to thank the following for the contributions they've made: Yih Horng, Todd Troxell, T Frank Zvovushe, Suzanne Lorrin, Seth McCarus, Crispina Chong, John Crutchfield, Scott Johnstone, Patrick Sears. As well as those who have simply written to say they've found the tutorial useful. It's much appreciated!


What's new in Version 2.

I've had reports that the source code presented in the documents itself doesn't display line breaks properly in very old versions of Netscape, if you encounter this problem please refer to the code in the source files included in the zip download.
