Win32 and MFC is not a simple task.  I thought so when I bought all the
'supplies' but I soon learned that this was no daunting task.  I myself know
C/C++ with no problems but there yet subjects on which I can approve.

I have Programming Windows95 by Petzold and Advanced Programming Windows 95
by Richter as well as Inside Visual C++ 5.0 and the MFC Development Tutorial
CD from Microsoft.  With all that crap you should be able to figure it out
but it takes lots of time and energy.  At 8 hrs per day and (a
certificate/degree in C/C++ coding) the learning curve is at least 6 months
unless you can find someone to tutor you....
