I know stuff but the best way to learn is just how I did it... documentation and trial and error.

I'll help you out with quirks, because there definitely are some.

Do you actually want to understand what's going on or do you just want to use it?

There are some nice c++ wrapper classes out there.

Smartwin++, for example.

Visual Studios is free for home usage. Use that to make some basic GUIs and then view the source it autogenerates to get an idea of how things are used. Look up documentation, change things, and see how it applies.

Do you REALLY need to learn the win32 API? I don't know a lot about this subject, but I know there are alternatives like SDL that are... well, far more well-liked among programmers. And cross-platform, to boot.

How many programmers have you actually talked to? Because percentage wise, it's probably not true.

Well, I've not met a programmer yet who liked win32. I know that there are probably SOME people who like win32, but I did get a strong impression that there weren't many.

discretion's front end uses aedgui (http://aedgui.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html) which uses SDL, although I wouldn't recommend it. I think Ekted likes win32.

Well, if I remember correctly, there are, um... I guess SDL library extensions you can download. I don't know what they're called. Anyway, I'm pretty sure I saw one that was built specifically for creating windows-style UIs in SDL.

SDK stands for software development kit, and SDL is one.
