    Conio.h

    In Visual C++ the header file "conio.h" doesn't work. Do you know
    where i can find a way to make goto(x,y) work?

    conio.h in VC++ doesn't contain gotoxy. conio is a nonstandard header so it's a toss-up whether or not the function you want will be supported. Look in the cprogramming.com FAQ for a way to write your own gotoxy for Windows.

    -Prelude
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Code:
    void gotoxy(int x, int y)
    {
       COORD coord;
       coord.X = x;
       coord.Y = y;
       SetConsoleCursorPosition(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), coord);
    }
    Declare that and you can call it just as if it were in conio.h.
    BTW, dimentions are 80X50 i think.

    Have you tried _getch() and _clrscr()?

    What errors do you get, exactly?

    Well, you could think portably and just not use conio.h

    That's how to manage without conio.h
