    You have to make it into a cpp. Find the menu choice that says run or the little green triangle pointing to the right.

    if you have ran it then there is an exe file that is created in the same directory(most likely) as where your cpp file is.

    Download a compiler to make it into in EXE. No, you can't run the code straight from the .cpp file. It has to take the code and translate it into computer readable code first. If you REALLY did run it though, then there's gotta be an EXE somewhere.

    Downlaod a free compiler somewhere. Dev C++ and Borland are some good free (i think) compilers. Or you could shell out a few (lots) of bucks and get Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 (that's what i would reccomend if you really want to get serious about it)

    Hope this helps.
    Peace
    Hey, you gotta start somewhere
