Not building
« on: August 27, 2013, 01:17:42 am »
Hey guys, so I just installed Code::Blocks, as Im starting to learn C++ and it was recommended. So I installed it, and went to run it through a simple program to test it and when i click build and run it pops up a window "Program has not been built yet. Build now?" so I click yes, and it just flashes. It wont run it. If I click No, then it closes but the program doesnt run. Can anyone help? Heres the code:

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
  cout<<"HEY, you, I'm alive! Oh, and Hello World!\n";
  cin.get();
}

Do you have a Compiler installed?

If yes, what is the path to the installed compiler?

You did read the rules upon registering, didn't you? And you accepted them. http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,9996.0.html

Compiler problems are not related to this forums.

If you don't have a compiler installed, you'd better download the bundle of Code::Blocks, that comes with a working compiler installer. (codeblocks-12.11mingw-setup.exe)
