    Gui Programming in C++?

    Is it possible to code Graphical interfaces for programs similar to the style like that used for Hamachi or similar programs using C++.

    I've been looking around, but the only thing I've found so far is links for game programming.

    My typical search is GUI with C++ or something based on that, but all I get is tutorials for game design. Could you please lead me in the right direction?

    GUIs in C++ are only ugly when you use the platform's native API. Especially if that platform happens to be Windows. Frameworks make your life 100x better and you get cross platform support out of the deal.
