I recently started dabbling with Visual C++ Express Edition 2005. Was stuck at the very onset! LOL!
How to Create a console application using Visual C++ Express 2005 ??
I could create the project, included the files..did all.. build it nice and clean.. but how to run [ make ] the damn thing ?
Had me flustered!!
On to google and i found a nice video from the MSDN.
Many newbies face the same problem like me, I checked out various posts at various places.. facing the same problem.
So here is the link:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/visualc/aa445857.aspx

There are four videos on the page, the last one is
Create a Console Application from an Empty Project in Visual C++ Express (4 Minutes - 3.4 MB)

Hope this helps the newcomers... and ease their transition to the wonderfull IDE that is Visual C++ Express 2005 is.
Note: I also njoy working on Code::blocks too, just trying out VC++ ..

press :

CTRL + SHIFT + B to build it
CTRL + F5 to run it in release
F5 to run in debug

These are all in the drop downs on the IDE.
