You can use visual C++. Or use the QT Library with a program such as QTCreator. Those will both do what you want.

I second firey's suggestion for Qt. However, if you're only interested in Windows development, its not the only option: [url="http://sourceforge.net/projects/smartwin/files/smartwin/"]SmartWin++[/url] is a small but powerful C++ wrapper on top of the WIN32 API. (Writing a GUI directly using the WIN32 API is not a fun experience.) There is also a GUI editor for the toolkit called [url="http://sallyide.sourceforge.net/"]SallyIDE[/url].

So long as you are designing your GUI using Qt Creator, it is. Unlike SallyIDE - which fairly featureless except for the [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WYSIWYG"]WYSIWYG[/url] GUI editor - Qt Creator is actually a pretty good IDE all-around IMHO.

It can be. There is even a version that integrates with Visual Studio, but I am not honestly sure if you need the full version of Visual Studio, or if the Express version will work.

In Qt Creator, goto File->New File or Project...->Files and Classes->Qt->Qt Designer Form Class. That will add an graphically editable interface with an accompanying class that you can implement.

If you're serious about learning Qt, you should probably consider reading a good tutorial or book on the subject. While Qt [i]is[/i] fairly easy to understand and use, there is no substitute for a solid, conceptual understanding of how it works. I recommend [i]C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4 (Second Edition)[/i], although if you want a complete list of what's available check the [url="http://qt-project.org/books"]Qt Project's Books page[/url].

How well do you know C++? All GUI toolkits require pretty decent knowledge of C++ before you can jump in and make an app even if they do support RAD (drag & drop development) like VB.
