    just starting

    ok so I wrote my first game, its a minature golf game. Not very good but my first attempt at gaming and just started programming. anyway I wrote it in Dev and now do not know how to turn my code into something like a desktop icon so that when I click on it the game starts and I dont have to run it through Dev all the time. Please help and be specific, remembering I am very new to this.

    What do you mean by Dev? The Dev-CPP IDE?

    compile it? You can do that by pressing the F9 key in Dev C++, after that find the directory where the source is, copy the *.exe file on your desktop, and you can run it from there.

    Make sure you don't forget to move any external bitmaps and sounds when you move the executable, if there are any that didn't get compiled as a resource, and if you're using working directories (most people do).
