Hello World,

For beginners, this link(below) gives you some basic/conceptual windows programming "How things work under the hood".

In my opinion it gave me a good jump start on windows programming couple with resource intensive from MS web sites.

One good pointer the tutorials use LCC Win and it works with using Pelles C as well.

The owner of this link is Pravin Paratey and is still work in Progress. ...to all noobs - Check it out !

The post is 11 years old, and things change...   :)
The VISTA OS has been removed from any kind of support, nobody cried  ;), last month and the help system is no more actively supported from long time ago.
Anyway with some help from google:
Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279)
Windows 10 SDK (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/windows-10-sdk)
Windows Help (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee663302(v=vs.85).aspx)

You may know windows 10 no longer supports .hlp files with the OS.  However there are many useful .hlp files. Before tackling a reader or converter a web search turned up a solution. I've tested on several Win10 systems and it works very well.  All of my .hlp files display as they did previously.  Here is the link:
https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/winhlp32_for_windows_10.html

As always be sure you scan the file with antivirus software, all I can attest to is when I downloaded it was fine.
