    C++ console program using Ms Visual Studio .NET

    Does anyone here know how to go about creating a (dos) console program using Microsoft Studio .NET (proffesional version - if it matters).... Just a simple "hello world" program so it will be able to appear in a dos console (black) screen, without starting some big projects???

    Thanks in advance

    Select a win32 application, then when the dialog pops up select application settings->console application

    ok ..... i got the white screen..all i did is added a new item,,,, "c++ file" compiles and links fine however can't get it run the executable file right away......in Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 you had a nice option in the Build tab, you could click on "Run the executable" and you would see the output..... this .NET seems not to have such thing... hmmm???

    You have to add the button onto the build menu. Click on Tools->Customize->Commands->Debug->Start Without Debugging, then drag it to the build menu and your set.
