I am somewhat new to programming in C++, but not so much that I can't navigate it well. I go between 2 different versions of Visual C++ IDE, Visual C++ 6 and Visual C++.net 2002 std. I tried the suggestions in the FAQs "How do I Stop my Windows Console from disappearing everytime I run my program?" and " How do I get my program to wait for a keypress?" but it only works rarely. Is there an option hiding somewhere in the IDE to make it wait for a keypress? The cin.get() method does nothing for me. Can anyone help?
