Win32 console app & win32 app?????

Can anyone tell me the difference, i have the opengl superbible and it says to create a win32 console app, but i have an online tutorial and it says create a win32 console app, and not a console app(in bold letters) like it is a sin or something. Which way is correct or both i am afraid i do not knoe the difference.

Hi !

It’s a “win32 console application”, a “console application” would be an old DOS application (16 bit).


A console app =dos in windows + dll calls
