I recently started Windows programming after my c++ courses. I bought a book called Programming Windows 5th edition, and started full of confidence and joy. The problem is now that one of the first and easiest examples in the book, that of a basic win32 window which draws a bit of text doesn't work. Well it works, but if i pres F5 to debug it it doesn't paint any text and if I click the X to close the window the window closes but it doesn't unload, i stays in debugging mode, and if i use the release version I can still see it running in processes tab, and it takes a hell lot of processing power (25% on my 3.6GHZ Q6600). I have no idea what the problem is, maybe someone can help me?
P.S. i have Unicode enabled in the project properties
