I want to use Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition.
Learning programming isn't a job that can be accomplished in a day or two. It requires extensive knowledge and focusing on the necessary things that need to be learnt. In either cases, the best place to start your journey through programming is to check the official documentation on how to get started to programming available on the Microsoft website and then you can venture yourself into the world of programming using tutorials that you can find all over the Internet.
Why don't you try something simpler like visual basic. C++ is a pain in the ass, I tried it and i'm serious.
