    Perhaps you're missing a config file.

    i reccomend using Dev-C++ over Borland for beginning programming, iots free and available at but anyways if that did run it would run and close instantly try this when you fix your prob:

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    // the above makes it so you dont have to do std:: befor cout cin endl etc..
    int Main()
         cout << "I Work" << endl;
         cin.get(); // waits for the user to press enter before continuing
         return 0; // exit the program, because Main is a int it must return a integer, by returnng 
         // 0 it ends the function, in essance 0 on success anything else on fail
    i hope it helps

    PS: this should be in the C++ Programming Forum
