    yes i did dowloaded the code:blocks and run the compiler but i could not compile anything with it..instead it gives me a message:
    "It seems that the projest has not been built yet. Do you want to build it now?"

    when i press "Yes" it does nothing!

    Try this one. C::B and the compiler in one package. Integrated and configured.
    The error has nothing to do with Vista and everything with how you haven't properly configured the IDE.

    [B][U]ok it works now..i think...is the output of this program right?
    after the "hello, world" message, it show this:

    Process returned 0(0x0) execution time : 0.053 s
    Press any key to continue


    is it right???

    that depends on the program, but by convention programs return 0 on success.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    There's a good chance that your problem is mentioned in whatever FAQ there is for it. Unless you read through many FAQ articles there's a good chance many ignored you because your problem was too common for them to care about any more.
    Or maybe you just didn't wait long enough.
