    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    main()
    {
        printf("Hello World\n");
    }
    A
    Code:
    return 0;
    is missing...

    Add a
    Code:
    (void) getchar();
    before the return. It's a well known issue of Dev-C++. I hope it will be fixed some day, because it generates a lot of traffic...

    Be considerate and read this before posting code like it asks you to.

    Read the FAQ about your disappearing window problem.

    Not a good start here...but welcome anyway.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
