Specify your question a little more. Are you asking how to start and create a c++ file in visual studio or if when you write this code an error appears when debugging it but not when you paste the same code?

The question is how to create class and enter that costructors,in visual studio,but not to type everything on one page.the problem is to create costructor with wizard.

Go to Project -> Add Class. That will create a new class and bring up the class wizzard.

Thats good ,i now,but i mean how to create that costructor-Animal(const string & n, const string & t, const string & s)I enter class name,than how to finish that line typing in wizzard? Thanks

Honestly I never use the wizzard. I just write the code.
