  Obviously NOT. DV lottery application has no effect on your Visa.

  As a DV winner, I can assure you that applying for the Lottery won't affect your chances, and this is simply because the consular staff will neither know you did nor ask you about it (and You will not tell them about it! :) )
However, if you are notified as a potential winner, you'll receive a form called "Immigrant Visa form request" ( something of the kind) and not "Non-Immigrant visa request" like it is the case when you apply for B, F,J. etc... visas. Form the moment you send that form to the USCIS, you show your interest in staying for good in the USA (it's called "immigrant intent"), and only at that moment this could be a huge problem for your later visa applications, because tourist visa, student visa, etc.. are not dual intent

  @ sakhter: thanx ...appreciate it.....

@kuianoo: thanx a lot for your reply. i really am grateful for your advice. I am gonna give my CS later this year or maybe next year around march . and this dv lottery is due to open on july this year. practically ,the dv lottery results will have been out many months before, by the time i apply for visa(non dual type) .so what u're telling me is that if i win, its bad for me in all cases ? or just if i apply for visa(non dual type) first and then go on to win the lottery , only then its bad for me ? I thought winning it might help me stay in the states and relieve me from the tension of the limited period granted by the other visas. So i see u won the dv lottery.. how did it work out for u? did u have any other problems? looking forward to gr8 advices from you again............
