    I want to make a program
    Program to do what? If you have no previous knowledge of c++ (or even c) then you need to learn this from scratch preferably via a course or by on-line tutorials or from books. You cannot learn to program just by asking this forum for help to write an unknown program. Once you have started to learn c++ and have started to write your own programs then by all means post to codeguru about a specific problem you are having with code you have written.

    1) Write code
    2) Compile
    3) Debug

    Repeat until done.

    Anything more specific than that will require a more specific question.

    Code:
    void WriteCode();
    void Compile();
    bool Debug();
    
    int main()
    {
        do {
            WriteCode();
            Compile();
        } whlle (Debug());
    
        return 0;
    }

    C++ and Windows programming are difficult and time consuming to learn. You can't just come to a forum and ask how it's done. Get a good tutorial book, spend a few months with it learning the basics, then come back and ask SPECIFIC questions.

    Did you read GCDEF's post?

    Do you think programming is done by reading a two-page sheet of commands? It takes months of work to understand what you're doing.

    This isn't like learning HTML or some easy scripting engine.

    This is how you make this:
    • analyze your requirements to the app you are to make, split the app to screens/windows/dialogs
    • put down the app's architecture diagram, and create a workflow step by step in a natural language
    • identify your input data elements and design the way how you collect those, choose corresponding controls
    • identify your commands that let you follow the workflow and choose controls for issuing every particular command
    • research the meaning of too much generic terms like 'connect', 'login', etc., what those would mean in your particular case
    • research APIs the kijiji (whatever it means) provides for interaction with third parties, and choose the ones that suffice your needs in 'connect', 'login', etc.
    • based on the researches you've already done, choose programming language, frameworks, libraries, IDE, etc., that suit your needs, research the APIs related to the technologies you decided upon
    • make the work breakdown structure that will include: functional design and implementation for every single component/element of your app, tests for normal and error cases that would let you be sure the program does what it is intended to do and does not what it must do not
    • based on the plan above, design, implement and test your app


    And please take this advice as much serious as you can.
    Best regards,
    Igor

    Igor thank for your reply. I will do that. kijiji, it's a classifieds website. On your account you can put unlimited ads on different cities. I want this program to post with few clicks, 100 ads on the website. Load a database with ads and post them on the website. Understand the idea?

    For what you are trying to achieve taking into account your very limited c++ knowledge you might be better off learning and using c# - unless you really want to learn and use c++?

    All that I said above implies you are to perform the actions like analyze, research, choose, etc. So please start researching what IDE suits you the most.

    As for the task, I believe you should stop deceiving yourself. Basic C++ is definitely not enough to do what you want. Besides, C++ is too much low level for doing something like this, so you're in danger of being buried under a huge pile of technical details specific to C++ quirks. Languages like Java or C# seem much more friendly (and forgiving) to beginners, though the question of compatibility with the site API still remains.

    So the bottom line is: I have no recommendations for you until you start asking specific technical questions.

    Well, maybe I still have one thing that I could recommend: To move forward, choose really accomplishable tasks. Learn to dissect your big task to a bunch of little ones, and solve those one by one.
    Best regards,
    Igor
