I just compiled a small program in Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition using the command line method by making a .txt file and then pasting the code there. I used "cl/clr filename.cpp" and it makes an executable dos file. When I open the executable file the dos program closes immediately. What am I doing wrong?
First of all, your topic title isn't very unique to your situation and is actually an indication you didn't take very long to think of an important title. Don't be so lazy in the future.
Secondly, in keeping with my last point, you should search to make sure your questions are not already answered before posting. This one is a very common question with a relatively obvious answer: http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/...&id=1043284385
And lastly, welcome to cboard.
