Ok here is what the story is, the damn BorlandC++Builder CD did NOT work on my Vista Windows, so i got DEv++, but trying to follow the instructions of the C++24Hours, on the DevC++ did not work, got lost in all the project/file, saving/ opening, new. etc. . then i got the VisualC++ free from the link that someone posted.. its kinda more parallel to the book, but still got error message which i ddint get. Then i got First chapter of Visual studio 6 Integrated Devlopment Env. its old like from 2000. trying to follow those instructions , typing the Hello thing , but in the Visual C++ , this is the closest ive got, But STILL errors..:

1>------ Build started: Project: welcome1, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
1>Embedding manifest...
1>.\Debug\welcome1.exe.intermediate.manifest : general error c1010070: Failed to load and parse the manifest. The system cannot find the file specified.
1>Build log was saved at "file://c:\Users\Owner\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\welcome1\welcome1\Debug\BuildLog.htm"
1>welcome1 - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

1. Write readably. Use proper grammar. This isn't a chat room.
2. I don't own that book, and many others don't either, so you need to copy the code listing and paste it here.
3. Try cleaning and then rebuilding the project from the build menu in Visual Studio.

Hm.
Not sure what seems to be the problem, but the mentioning of 'manifest' makes me think you're trying to build an MSIL (C++ .NET) application. Make sure you're just making a regular Win32 Console application.
Also, since you're just starting out, try to select 'Empty Project'. That'll give you an empty project. You'll have to add a file to it manually, but you won't have to worry about including "stdafx.h" or anything.

Edit: Also, I have a feeling this Sam's Teach Yourself book is out of date. It should be <iostream>, not <iostream.h>!

I don't think C++ cares, but who knows it's C++! I imagine it'll pick up the .h anyway, if it's there.

This is one of the things I hate about Techy-Books, they just can't keep up.
Is there a website for the book? It might have amendments that could help you get up to speed.

I have the book, so I could give you a hand. But I know it always uses <iostream>, never <iostream.h>. I no longer use DevC++, for the reasons others have given, but when I did use it, for simple code like the examples in the book, I would just create a new file (not bothering with projects), then compile and run. Worked for me.

Actually, I used DevC++ then, but I use Code::Blocks now, which is better. I've never used Visual C++.

*sigh* I remember the days when everyone (who used C) used Borland C because MicroSoft C was shite.
Pascal and COBOL were still in wide use back then.

That happens because your program returns 0, which means it'll just exit when it's finished executing.
On the start menu in Windows, go... hm, I think it's called 'Utilities' or 'Additional Utilities'. Then run the console from there and type in the full address of your program. Then you'll see the output on the screen.

Yeah, forgot to mention that. DevC++ will close it instantly. Either run it from the console as Afr0 said, or stick system("pause"); before return 0;. I think there's a better way than that line, but I can't remember what it is. Anyone?

Alternatively, if you use Code::Blocks instead of DevC++, it will leave the console window open so you can see the result.
