    help with compiler

    hey, i'm a newbie, and by newbie meaning i've just downloaded my first compiler. i downloaded the Bloodshed Dev C++ (which i hear is a really good one) but i'm having a problem with it. i open up a new Console Applicatio, put in the sample code they gave:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
      cout<<"The Compiler Works";
      return 0;
    }
    and clicked Execute-Compile. then hit Execute-Run. when i do that, a message comes up saying "project is not compiled" that's all the tutorial i was looking at told me to do, is there's something i'm missing. also, after i hit Execute-Compile, in the small table at the bottom of the window is says "Line: 2, File: C:\Dev-Cpp\... Message: unable to run program file" any help is appreciated, as i would really like to get past this very first step of learning C++

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
            cout << "The Compiler Works." << endl;
            return 0;
    }

    you know what, it may be something wrong with the complier/my computer, and maybe not the code. i tried inputting all difference kinds of code i gathered from places, just to see if it works, and i got the same problem. i uninstalled the compiler, i may try redownloading it.

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>}change to just <iostream> 
    
    using namespace std;  // add what Brian said here.. 
    
    int main()
    {
      cout<<"The Compiler Works";
    
    system ("pause"); //  add this here, it pauses the screen so you can see what you did 
    
     return 0;
    }

    He can't even compile yet, the code isn't going to help him. Although it is correct. Cater the code you are testing is outdated, be sure to use the new code they posted when you get everything working.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    that wont work, here is the correct one:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib> // This is needed for system("pause");
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    {
        cout << "The Compiler Works";
        system("pause");
        return 0;
    }

    sometimes you don't even need the system to pause.. If you are returning a 0 ie. return 0; then the system will say "press any key to continue."

    After you hit the key the window will close. This is a software related issue and will require one of the following:

    1) Update on current software
    2) Reinstall
    3) New complier software

    Hope this helps
