Command Prompt Failure

by sharkky9 / October 10, 2005 2:09 PM PDT

Whenever I attempt to run the cmd program under start>run, an error message flickers across the screen very rapidly and then it closes. The error message is unreadable. The same thing happens when i attempt to run the very simple c++ program Hello World. Any suggestions at all would be appreciated.

Yeah that solved that problem, and the c++ problem turned out not to be a problem. That's how it was supposed to happen. Thanks for your help.
