I created a simple cpp file with no errors (hello world project) but it won't launch.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
    cout << "!!!Hello World!!!" << endl; // prints !!!Hello World!!!
    return 0;

here is the video of it: Click Here

I don't have much experience with Eclipse, but I've seen somne IDE's that don't pause the console after main is finished. On a small app like this, it will look like it didn't run at all. Basically though it has run and finished just too fast for you to see it. If this is the case, you'll either have to look at pausing the app before main finishes or use a different IDE, such as Code::Blocks, which does pause the console automatically.


That probably has something to do with the folder you're storing the the source code in. Try making a folder, probably in the root drive, and making that the default for the source code.
