I still got a copy of the book and I think it's a good start learning games under Windows.
I am not sure what you want to do.
Normally the book is about games not about windows.
In the book he will create a Game Engine that will take care of the details of windows creation. Probably best to wait for the book to arrive.
Thanks for feedback. I am excited to read "Beginning Game Programming" by Michael Morrison. I hope it is as good as "C++ Primer Plus" by Stephen Prata.
I got the Skeleton window to show up. I created a console application instead of a desktop application. The window creates using the desktop application.

You need to update the position inside the loop otherwise you will always draw it at the same position and you wont see an effect.
For a very basic introduction to both Windows and Game programming the book is good, though out-dated.
