    No clue what the problem is...

    Ok I have jsut recently started programming, and I ahve a friend who is teaching me a bit. I made a short program...very short...and for some reason it wont work. When my friend runs it on his pc, in the same compiler, it works fine. Although when I run it, nothing happens. Neither of us no hwy it wont run, it just wont.

    I have checked to see if there are any errors, by looking at the error tab. It says:

    FILE:
    C:\Dev-Cpp\Makefile.win

    MESSAGE:
    [Build Error] [Project1.exe] Error 1



    There are no other errors, we have both check the code many many times. Also for some reason it wont let me compile it. Well it compiles, but then when I try to run it it says "Project Not Compiled"

    If you need anymore info on it, let me know and ill get it to you ASAP.

    It looks like Dev-C++ wasn't installed properly. Did you just copy it from your friend's computer?

    Where are you saving your program? Try saving it as C:\hello.cpp

    Check the parameters you're passing to the project.

    Project > Project Options > Parameters

    Also on the bottom bar where you got the compile error, click on the compile log tab and paste that.

    No I am the one that typed the program and he just showed me some of the errors I made, to help me learn a bit. Also I saved it as project1.exe.

    Here is the compile log.

    Code:
    Compiler: Default compiler
    Building Makefile: "C:\Dev-Cpp\Makefile.win"
    Executing  make...
    make.exe -f "C:\Dev-Cpp\Makefile.win" all
    g++.exe -c project1.cpp -o project1.o   
    windres.exe -i Project1_private.rc --input-format=rc -o Project1_private.res -O coff 
    g++.exe project1.o Project1_private.res -o "Project1.exe" libkbhit  
    g++.exe: libkbhit: No such file or directory
    
    make.exe: *** [Project1.exe] Error 1
    Execution terminated
    Also after looking at that(I forgot it was down there) I think I didnt link the kbhit library correctly or something.

    If you actually have a library called libkbhit*, like it using -lkbhit. If it's in a different directory, add the directory to the library path with -Lpath.
