    You bumped an old thread which isn't allowed. Please take the time to read the forum guidelines which explain this and other points that will help you to get better advice for your programming problems.

    I've moved your question here and posted this information here since, apparently, I'm unable to send you a private message.


    iostream.h is non-standard but your compiler might complain if you include the standard 'iostream' header - consider using a more recent compiler.

    On failure of the CreateProcess function, use GetLastError to provide more information about that failure.
