    "Cannot compile the file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\Text2.txt'; no compile tool is associated with the file extension"

    My guess is that you'll need to save your source code file with a .cpp extension instead of .txt

    I can proudly say I've never been there .
    I've been to other dark shameful places.
    Thor's self help tip:
    Maybe a neighbor is tossing leaf clippings on your lawn, looking at your woman, or harboring desires regarding your longboat. You enslave his children, set his house on fire. He shall not bother you again.

    OS: Windows XP
    Compiler: MSVC
