Question cross-compiling for win under linux

Hallo everybody.

I've been fooling around with some C++ programing, and I want to get into
makeing some simple windows games.

My only problems are that i don't know where the windows.h and other required header files
for windows are.

I have wine installed, if that helps at all.

Thanks for any help,

If it's a default install of wine they should be in the wine directory in the home directory of the user who installed it. Like this

worth a shot anyway..

That is not correct, the include files will be in /usr/include/wine on a standard RPM install.

I'd have to question the wisdom of writing Windows apps under Linux however. If you want to write software that runs under both, check out things like SDL and GTK, which have freely available Windows ports.
