Edit your post, and move it to the Lounge.
ohh sorry :D
Try downloading this library and playing with it
Run through the tutorials and you'll learn how to make a window, manipulate graphics, etc.

But while good for 2d, it isn't great for 3d simply because it isn't easy to make an intuitive wrapper for a 3d enviornment due to the complexity. To get everything 3d, you'll need to learn OpenGL or DirectX yourself.
yes exactly i want to learn how to use OpenGL what should i need to download and what exactly do i need to learn them?

The two links above should be more than enough to learn OpenGL.
What do you need to download? Well if you have Visual C++ installed, it should already have the OpenGL libraries ready for you to use.
ohh i see,i have visual c++ 2010,so i dont need to download anything?srry guys,im a newbie so i need your help :D,i want to learn how to open window using OpenGL 1st ehehehhe,thx for the reply
Try to build this example program:

It's from the NeHe site, where a lot of OpenGL examples and tutorials can be found, if you want to jump straight into the action. But for in-depth knowledge you will have to go back to the first two sites I linked to.
everytime i open those project i got some error XD,
i think its better to use dev c++ than visual c++ 2010 i got error when i use visual c++ 2010

If you are using the up to date version of dev C++ (IE the Orwell Version found here http://orwelldevcpp.blogspot.com/) it doesn't matter but if you use bloodshed Dev C++ you NEED to get a new compiler (If you haven't updated it already) and IDE.

If you had a up to date compiler you would be getting the exact same errors you would get in visual C++ 2010, the only reason you aren't getting them is because your compiler is outdated and lets them errors pass through the cracks.
i got dev c++ i downloaded visual c++ 2010 for free,is it more good to use than my dev c++?

Your current dev C++? Yes you are using a outdated version from over 8 years ago (Probably more but can't remember that exact date).

Though if you like how dev C++ work head over to the link I posted in my previous post and you can download a up to date version (I believe it is at version 5.4.0 or 5.4.1) that is just fine to use.
