documentation/ example project for junior programmers

Hi,

 i ran the setup.msi and project.msi. I am running visual c++ 2008 express edition. i am new to this and i am not sure how to proceed. i started up visual studio but could not figure out how to access some demo "hello world" kind of project from where i can start.

 it would be very kind if you can give/point me some to kind of  documentation or simple project from where i can start.

You need to install Visual C++ 2010 Express edition. Visual C++ 2008 is not supported.

Thank you very much Keith. I was wondering if I download the trunk is it possible to modify it to work with visual c++ 2008. or are there some inherent issues with visual c++ 2008 which will cause problem.

If you are comfortable setting compiler flags, see http://kalx.net/xll. As a first cut, just delete any files that give you compiler warnings. Off the top of my head, handle.h would be the main culprit.
