C++ is the devil! (Newbie)

I got it working, most of the way, now I'm just getting an "ambiguous symbol" error on the MessageBox function.
Error 1 error C2872: 'MessageBox' : ambiguous symbol c:\users\*****\documents\visual studio 2005\projects\*****\*****\Form1.h 18
int mrint = MessageBox(NULL, "Blah", "Caption", MB_OK|MB_ICONINFORMATION);

who said what now? :p

Hm, didn't see you replyed to the previus post :D Sorry.

I don't think you can use the OOP frameworks well without a solid foundation of C++ concepts ;)

Uh, thats what I meant by starting out in the console? :p Start at the beginning of C++ or where you fell your at and work toward the more advanced features... Maybe learn some STL while your at it :p
And portability! :D

If coded properly, you can showel it onto almost any platform with no/minimal changes :) //C++ included
