    Most likely the program finishes faster than you can see it. Should the program be waiting for input from you? If not, it will simply execute then close itself.

    As cat said, it's most likely just running through the program before you see it. Try adding a cin.get() to pause the program right before the return 0 at the end of main. Another option is to run the program from the command line. Open cmd.exe, navigate to the appropriate directory, and type your programs name.

    Which segment is it? All of those should compile and run fine so long as you have them exactly as is.

    No, that should be fine, then. I noticed you created a project to do these, though. I'm thinking maybe you set it up wrong. Here's what I want you to do. Close the project, open the source code file (.cpp) and try compiling that by itself, then open that.
