    Ensure that the file you are trying to open is .CPP or else DEvC++ doesnt see it as a C++ file. You have to then choose 'All files' in the Open file dialog box for C++ files with extensions like .CC or .CCP etc.

    Steps to open and compile a c++ file
    1. File -> Open Project or File
    2. Edit the details you need to
    3. Execute - > Compile
    4. Fix any errors and then simply choose 'Execute' to run the program or 'Continue' to proceed with editing.

    Off course if you have a project you will need all files open (incl .H and .CPP) to edit and compile simultaneously.

    For better assistance check out:
