    Post your code..
    Although it sounds like you have the wrong include file.

    string location[] = "";

    using namespace std;


    Might want to try reversing those.

    using namespace std;

    string location[] = "";

    Code:
    #define ofstream fout;
    #define ifstream fin;
    preprocessor directives dont end with a semi-colon;
    Couldn't think of anything interesting, cool or funny - sorry.

    MSVC++ just sucks nonetheless. their J++ compiler is good though. but a program that would have worked on Bloodshed Dev C++ and worked, didn;t work on MSVC++. so i just gave up on MSVC++ and i just use MSVJ++ only from nnow on.

    get bloodshed. its the best.

    I think Dev C++ is quite crappy, compared to compilers that cost money.
    I had code that worked in VC++, Borland C++ Builder and CodeWarrior, when I tried to compile in Bloodshed Dev C++, I got hundreds of errors. I'm quite sure that the code was ISO C++.
    #define ofstream fout;
    not recommended.

    Might I point out that Bloodshed Dev C++ is not a compiler.

    Yea, yea, I know.

    But it is usually referred to as a compiler, although it is only a GUI/IDE. I was using mingw when I tested it.

    says who? although its generally considered bad practice, they can end with whatever you want them to; the preprocessor merely does a dumb search and replace wherever it needs to.

    i dont care what anyone says, BShed Dev C++ is my favorite compiler, and probably the reason you got hundreds of errors was because you had the wrong project options on. if its a window it has to be set to win32GUI and not win32Console. i know how to use BShed C++ well, and its a great compiler. the ones that cost money are a rip-off in my opinion. but thats just my opinon., dont take me seriously.
