    Lightbulb Help! Visual Studio 6 Newb I'm stuck on first program

    Hello Guys, I just downloaded visual studio 6 but it appears that it is not working well.

    I started my first program based on this guide: Introduction to Visual C++ 6

    Followed all the instructions and I am trying to execute this program but this came out

    I am pretty sure there is no error in the code but I am not sure how the build program thing is supposed to work. What can I do in this situation?

    That message is telling you that the program isn't built yet. When you build it creates the .exe.

    Just click yes to build.

    1. Then you did so illegally. VS6 was never a free download. Do you think whoever hacked it didn't slip in some extra special goodies of their own (not for your benefit)?
    2. It's well over 10 years old.
    3. It's support for the C++ standard is patchy (in some places, non-existent)

    Delete it, clean your system, and get the latest visual studio (legitimately) for free here
    Microsoft Express Downloads - Visual Studio Express and SQL Server Express
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
