    compiling and executing issue with lcc win32

    Hey everyone,

    Here'sy problem, i installed lcc win32 some time ago on a Win XP system and now i want to compile something, my source looked oke, as i pressed ctrl-f5 which is compile and execute, if needed update everything the console application pops up and says return code -1 and thats all for the rest nothing else the window closes after i hit a button.

    Now if I run the program after compiling it only and run it out of the directory ( thats without using anything that has to do with lcc win32 compiler ) the console application works fine...

    Thats my first problem, i tried to check and see if it was one kind of compiler setting but in vain.
    If anybody experienced this before please help me out on this one since switching from compiler to windows explorer is not really a fast thing to do

    Second problem i encountered just now is that after entering this code ( a simple code since i wanted to check if the previous discussed matter was still there after changing some compiler settings )
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main ( ) {
    
    	printf(" is it working ? \n");
    
    	return 0;
    	}
    With this code the compiler is giving me the error "Entry point("main" function) is not defined. Of couurse its not compiling anything.
    Before i would never have this problem ( i used Borland compiler before ).

    I thought the info that ill give you guys next might be usefull to help me, heres what i select when i do "create new project"

    DEFINITION OF A NEW PROJECT ( window )
    options:single user
    type of project: console application

    Then i get the question:
    Would you like to use the wizard to generate an application skeleton? I then press NO

    Then i add a new source file to project

    COMPILER SETTINGS
    no preprocessor defined
    debug support level: generate debug level info
    language extension: ANSI-C
    warning level: normal
    type of output: console application.
    Well i hope all this info should do it...

    Thanks in advance,

    Ganglylamb

    2. Works fine for me. You may want to download the latest version of LCC.

    1.
    I dont think you got my question right or i dont know on whqt you replied of course i know that a console app might disappaer after compile and execute after fully executing and to prevent there are indeed different ways to prevent that one #include <conio.h>
    getch(); is one and then system("pause"); is one which i dont like

    2. I already have the latest lcc version....

    I dont know which question of mine you answered but in any case a wrong question...which i never asked anyway...

    I was joking...sort of. I'd just try reinstalling your compiler first to see if that fixes it. You may also want to Google the error you're getting. But since I'm not lcc tech support, I'll leave that to you.

    Oh oke, luckily i had not started yet with your FFR procedure .

    Yeah ill try to check some things with their own support, but i thought since there are some ppl who are very used to lcc i thought let me just try here.

    Anyhow thx again, ill look into the whole thing again.

    Why not have a look at mingw developer studio. You may find it alittle more user friendly.

    Mingw Developer Studio
    Microsoft is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistant one.

    soltion for compilation

    Hi, I've found a forum with the answer to compile problem.
    The error is related on how the compiler works.
    (our file is obviously correct DO NOT CENCEL IT!!! just save ).

    note: The compiler return an error if you create a new project with a blank file.

    In order to avoid the error create another PROJECT and then select the already created .c file then compile it

    Yes, I had this problem too, I just couldn't remember how I fixed it!

    I still use LCC though, it does have a few rough edges, but not enough to make me change.
