can't get new program to build/run
« on: June 16, 2019, 10:34:01 am »
Just installed Code::Blocks and tried to run a first test to get it going. However, it throws an error. This will be very simple fault from my side, but please a bit of help. I am new to Code::blocks, so have a bit of patience!
Looking forward to some help.
Jacob.

You must create a project even for single files (select File->New->Project->Console project)

This is not correct.

@jacob: Next time please read the FAQ. There is an answer for your problem. And it is - rename your file to .cpp and it will work.

Many thanks. It works as you say. And sorry for not having looked into FAQ's.
