    To make programs, you need a C++ compiler; any will do for learning purposes. There are tons of them out there, but not all are free. I used Borland's Dev-C++ for a while, but later got Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 from my university. Others can recommend their preferred compilers. You can do a simple Google search for free C++ compilers and try them out until you find a good one. Find a good C++ book or tutorial (I believe there is one here on PF) and practice, practice, practice. It really is a great language and is very powerful. Good luck!

    Microsoft have free "express" versions of their development enviroments.

    The compiler has the same C++ standard as their professional products and the IDE is nice of you come from Java.
    If (unlikely) you prefer a command line interface look at http://www.mingw.org/ which is a port of the excellent gnu GCC compiler on windows.
