    You used single quotes around the test string instead of double quotes.
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
            string name;
            
            cin >> name;
            
            if (name == "hi")
            {
                    cout << "\nHELLO THERE!!";
            }
            else
            {
                    cout << "\nYou didnt say hi!";
            }
            return 0;
    }
    Processing error: Stupidity detected.
