Hi there, could anybody tell me how to compile a program and run it using Visual C++ 2005?
This is what I have done:
-File, New, Project;
-In the menu, I choose Win 32 and then Win 32Console application; then I give a name to the project and save that on my desktop;
-on the win 32application wizard I click on next and then choose Empty project, then finish.
-the new project is now running so I choose File, New, File and then choose C++File in the menu, then ok
-then I paste my code in, F7 to compile it and get this:
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 0 failed, 1 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
then F5 to run it but I have an error message telling me that "it is unable to start the program...The system cannot find the file specified"...
Any suggestion at all?
Thanks

You still need to add the new file to the project, do that via Project / Add Existing Item and select your new file. Or alternatively you may drag/drop the file onto the Solution Explorer.

In general, you probably want to add new files/classes via the Project menu.

>>Build: 0 succeeded, 0 failed, 1 up-to-date, 0 skipped

That tells you that it did not generate an executable program. Did you save the source file after you created it?

Problem solved, thanks guys, I wasn't using it correctly. I am used to Visual C++ 6.00, which works in a slight different way for some reasons
thanks
again
