Greetings everybody.

I have installed MS Visual C++ 2005 Express, but I didn't find in templates Win32 Project, only Win32 Console Application. Can I download/add/install this template from somewhere

Thanks,

Z.

From my knowlage C++ Win32 applications only support console applictions, but this may be different in the full version of Visual Studio.

Check my "Platform SDK installation instructions" post at the top of this forum.

Add to Nobugz's comment, with platform sdk installed and set up correctly, you will be able to build windows application with visual c++ 2005 express, but, "Win32 Project" template is still missing, choose "Win32 Console Application" and set "Application Type" in "Application Settings" page to "Windows Application" is the way how you "build windows application" in express edition. In short, "Win32 Project" template only available in retail version of visual c++.
