    To remove salt from the wound... you can just install Visual Studio, open, create a new project, compile, run. No setup necessary. Unless you want to change some specific settings, of course.
    Plus, although it doesn't support C99, it has a safer library that is a much needed gift to C89, so I definitely recommend Visual Studio over Dev C++.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    I tried DevC but I don't know enough about setting up compilers for the DevC to get it running. I try to compile something and it says can't find file. Doesn't say what it can't find though.
    Can you be more specific on "says it can't find file"? Is it a compiler error? Are you getting something in the console below that says "can't find file?"

    I can make a guess and say something isn't being included like the stdio.h file.
