I have Microsoft Visual C++ 4.00 Standard edition and I am just learning to write programs. I use console application to make these programs, but when I compile them They compile to a dos screen and it has a message on the bottom to press any key. When I press any key it returns to the compiler. I tried to run the .exe by clicking on them with winows explorer but the program just flashes on and then off. If I go to dos and type in the exe filename then it runs and I can see my program work. Does this mean that console applications are only able to work if I go to dos and then execute them or is there a way to do it in win98?
Thanks in advance for the help.
