    I dont belive Visual C++ 2005 express edition compiles because it is free but there is a way save your project and go to the folder you saved it in and look for a folder in your project folder called debug then search the other folders you should come across your program
    C++ is me favorite!

    Did you download Code::Blocks with the compiler?
    Warning: Have doubt in anything I post.

    GCC 4.5, Boost 1.40, Code::Blocks 8.02, Ubuntu 9.10 010001000110000101100101

    of course it compiles, wouldn't be much use if it didn't.

    click on Build menu then build solution or you could press f7

    IDE's normally need to be configured in some way to tell them where the various compilers are installed.

    Actually, if you have "certain" compilers install, when you install codeblocks, it does automatically configure for that compiler. Mingw is one as is MS toolkit compiler

    It might be because of the bug with codeblocks...
    you have to create a project in order for the compile button to work...

    There's just no pleasing some people

    With other IDE's people complain that their screen windows disappear in an instant, so we tell them to read the FAQ on how to wait for a key press....

    You can run your program from the command prompt.
