Code Blocks

  1. May 13, 2012 #1
    I just began a course on computer science and we're to use Code Blocks as the program to use, but I can't get the darn thing to work.
    The built in simple program called "hello world" is supposed to have a black window pop up that says "hello world", but the window pops up and disappears and I can't make it stay. It just flashes. I tried clicking next to every line to stop it at every point, but it never stays.

    I have never used CodeBlocks, but I had the same problem with some other C++ IDE when I was getting started.

    This may be helpful.

    Thanks. Actually it just started working for no apparent reason. I didn't change anything. It sucks that my learning experience is dependent on the whims of my schizophrenic computer.
