[some win32 code]

Sorry, but this isn't helpful. You should describe what you did (which is
what the code does, though it could perhaps be shorted a bit), what you
expected to happen and what happened instead. Like this, it will only be
guessing for anyone that could perhaps help you. For further info, I
suggest Eric S. Raymond's excellent essay on "smart questions", which you
should be able to locate with a websearch easily.

Apropos guessing: TCHAR!=char

The folks in comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32 can probably help you
with this. To help them help you, I suggest you (a) put your question
in the body of the message, not just the subject line, and (b) tell
them exactly *how* it doesn't work.

Please put your question in the post as well as in the subject. And be
clearer.

As for the code itself, it doesn't work probably because you've done
some things that are rather silly even by the usual Windows API
standards of silliness. It looks like you're programming for 1992, not
for 2009. For more details, ask in a Windows programming group, not
here.

Can you give a brief description of what you're expecting the code to
do and what errors the compiler is generating? Otherwise I'm not sure
what to tell you.

And ye flipping Gods, I am so glad I never had to do Win32
programming; that's just *ugly*.

#include <windows.h>

This is not a standard C include file.
LONG FAR PASCAL WndProc(HWND,UINT,WPARAM,LPARAM);

FAR, PASCAL, the types HWND, UINT, WPARAM, LPARAM are undefined.

for a start. Try a newsgroup where those things are understood.
Probably one with either or both of microsoft and windows in its
name.
