This extension adds a C++ Project Template called StandardCppWin32App. This template creates a C++ project which is a Win32 desktop application that used as its entry point the ISO(R) Standard C++ required entry point function:
int main(int argc, char* argv);
It also includes a rudimentary Win32 window class, Win32Window.
The code sample is small in scope but is, nonetheless, a complete C++ Win32 desktop application, complete with a basic main window with a menu, an About window, and other resources stored within its RC file.
