    problems compiling in gcc

    Hi guys i need some help
    I make a program in c and i compile the program in Linux with gcc. The programs good right. Then i prove the .exe of Linux at Windows and it doesn't work. When i click at the .exe in windows the computer open a ms-dos window and don't do anything. I prove the .exe at the console of windows and it doesn't work.
    Anybody have an idea how resolve this problem compiling in gcc of Linux.

    I don't think I'm alone here, so I'll be blunt - WHAT???

    Please describe your problem more clearly.
    No No's:
    fflush (stdin); gets (); void main ();

    Example of fgets (); The FAQ, C/C++ Reference

    My Gear:
    OS - Windows XP
    IDE - MS Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition

    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI

    What exactly do you mean by 'prove'?

    Please expand on how it ''doesn't work''

    hmmm... Are you saying you compiled a C program under linux, and then tried to open the resulting executable under Windows?

    Post your code and the error message(s), or at least a better description than "doesn't work".
    If you're referring to the console window appearing and disappearing quickly, well that's in the FAQ.
    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.

    Do you have cygwin in windows? If no then install it and run in windows the .exe (./your_exe) as you should in Linux.

    Linux and Windows executables are completely different, and it's very difficult to get one to run on the other. You need to re-compile your program for windows. One way to do so is to use cygwin, a port of bash to windows: it can compile most Linux text-based programs. (If you're program is ANSI compatible you can compile it with just about any compiler, such as the free compiler Dev-C++ that many members of this board use:
