    This looks like C#, not C++.
    I think it would be better off in the C# section.

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

    In other words: You found this code from somewhere else, and are asking all over the internet for someone to change it for you.

    question about how to chose a random word

    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.
