Maybe smbd programed in c++ using winAPI and free compiler.
Could you recommend the compiler?
Possibility to build the user interface in C++ would be the advantage.

Now í have installed MinGW.
But no ideas how to make executable,
since g++ can not find headers.
And no ideas how to incorporate glade, which is in C language.

Is CygWin better to use with c++?

Thanks for everyone

Read your documentation and install it correctly. Dev-Cpp provides an IDE for MinGW and MS's VC++ 20005 is also free. Both worked for me out of the gate.
