    Angry My compiler is being a pos

    Now, i created one of those helloworld things. I try to open the exe and i get an error saying... "Note: the term of the end user license agreement for visual C++ Introductory Edition do not permit redistrobution of executables you create with this product"

    The program closes and I cant view it, man... this sure isnt my day.
    this is my signature. k thx

    It sounds like you have one of the real cheap crippled versions of Visual Studio. They are produced to let people experience the product but not release software written with it. There is another level which allows you to release stuff, but does not optimise or do some of the other clever stuff, the professional level is really great, and enterprise, (for those that need it), is better still.

    Look in the board FAQ for some links to free IDE/compilers, or upgrade your Visual Studio.

    You need to put some form of 'pause' to allow you to view what your console app is doing before it returns. Check out the board FAQ for a few examples.

    As far as the "You can't distribute me" message, there's no way around that with the learning edition. But if you're just starting out and don't have the cash for MSVC++ pro, the learning edition is great for learning and getting the feel for the IDE while you save the money for the full-blown version.

    k, i didnt know it was a learning edition, i borrowed it from a freind.... id figure it would still let you run your program. that sucks. I have another VC++ on disc but it has no libraries i dont think, u think if i installed it it could use the libraries from this pos learning edition? i dunno much on how libraries work.

    Official distribution disks contain all you need - if it's a pirate, then your on your own.

    Try BloodShed Software's Dev C++,

    http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html

    Download version 4, cuz version 5 is beta, and has a few bugs.

    but that is the IDE I use now, and I don't have many probs with it
    at all.
    Keep smiling, it makes the big guys wonder what you're up to.
