    Code::Blocks, Help with building/running

    Ok, Im not sure why its happening but it wont let me complie or run any programs...

    I load a program up which I made before and which works, and then i tried to copy and paste some code into it from this website, however when i go to build it the buttons are all grey and i cant click on them, i tried pressing F9 to do it that way but that didnt work.

    Im sorry if im doing something wrong or i this is really nooby (as some people put it) but does anybody know how to fix this?

    Grey buttons mean that something is still running on the background. Check your OS's processes. Sometimes that happens because of wrong program termination.

    Or... my favorite dumb trick... Click on the IDE and hide a running program behind it.
