Re: GNU setup?

Try linking to the windows 32 libraries, ie,

g++ -o winhello.exe winhello.cpp -luser32 -lgdi32

you DON'T link the kernel; add -Wl,--subsystem,windows to get rid of the
console window.  Apparently this can be done automatically by using the
-mwindows option, but I this hasn't worked for me (anyone have any input)?

You should be able to get it working -- I'm not far ahead of you here. 
Good luck!
