Hello.:) 
I'm developing a C++ program which downloads files.
I want to show the files that are available in a database, (maybe by using a listbox?) and then allow the user to select it and download the file by pressing a download button.

I've made the overall design of the program in Visual Basic C++ 2008.
Here's an image of it.


I've made a console program which did this before, however now I feel that it needs to be upgraded with a nice interface.

Can anyone help me?
Thanks. :D

Visual Studio 2008 can give you more elements to create the interface.

Ahhh. Sorry, I think I have Visual C++ 2008 Express edition.
Do you know how I can set up the database to work with the listbox?
I figure the database will also have to know the download links for the file as well.

Thanks.

Right.

I'm not sure (long time without create programs), but you need create the DB and make a job on your program that call the database and the correct file to download.

I've seen a few videos of people making the database in Microsoft Access.
Is that what I need to do?

Thanks. :)

Yea, Access is a good and easy program to learn. You also can create the DB on SQL, is much better that Access, but also more difficult. But i think that with access is enough for you.
