    cannot not create process.. hello world..

    Hi, I just cov the Dev-c++ compiler, I pasted a simple hello world program, it compiles nicely. but gives the error "cant create proccess" when I execute it, I have coded before a few years ago as a hobby, i know this is probably very simple, thanks..
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
      cout<<"HEY, you, I'm alive! Oh, and Hello World!\n";

    I'll give it a try when I get home... still can't believe I have to switch compilers.......... Im in China I bought a Samsung laptop, that had Windows in Chinese, Walmart gave me an old copy of English xp, and I've been struggling with many small issues ever since. This could be related to some obscure systematic issue...such as when I download something, i have to usually move it to my desktop from the downloads window before I can install it ect. I know this is pathetic, but thats why I need to increase my coding ability.

    Changing IDE is not the same thing as changing compiler.

    What you're describing seems consistent with a configuration problem, in your version of windows or your hardware or the IDE itself. IIRC, the only version of Dev-C++ that supports windows XP is in beta (i.e. it is prerelease, and problems aren't necessarily all shaken out).

    Even under windows XP it is not necessary to move a program from downloads area to the desktop to execute. I suggest that problem is more that you don't know how to usefully run programs, rather than a problem with XP. You would be better off spending some time getting familiar with XP, before trying to develop software on (or for) an XP system. Being able to use an operating system is generally a prerequisite to being able to develop programs for that operating system.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Buttercup, and read this, this, and this before posting again.
