I've just started trying Windows programming in C++, using the tutorials at http://www.visualcomponentlibrary.com/win32
, so far no problems except when I try to do things involving a resource file, as in lesson 2 at the above site. As far as I can tell I've followed the tutorial's instructions fully, the .rc and .h files are in the same directory as the other project files, they are both added to the project, saved and compiled before I try the main program, when I do so I get the same result as at the end of the previous lesson, nothing to do with the resource files is present (a cursor and menus) (and yes I did update the Main.cpp code). There are no errors on compiling, but no menu and no fancy cursor. I hate to ask what is probably a stupid question but I'm pretty stuck.
