I would recomend:

Downloading free Express tools from Microsoft. They are beta versions, I
have not yet installed them myself but did download them, I need to clear up

I would highly recommend getting a copy MathLink: Network Programming with
Mathematica by Chikara Miyaji and Paul Abbott. This book comes with a CD
which has CodeWarrior lite.

There are a few C and C++ tutorial online you just have to look for them.

Benefit to downloading this Micorsoft free Beta product is that you may also
play around with .NET/Link.
Downsides are no support, you need the .NET framework 2.0, you may need a
passport account, ...

The book though would solve most issues, newbie help, Mathlink explained,
code samples, and a compiler, that they use in examples of the book. But it
is not free.
