Not need to creat a project when I have a source file.

I did and all I see is creating a project for a CPP but I already have a c file why I need a project?

Let's put it this way

Let's put it this way. If you can't figure this little issue out, you're never going to have even the remotest of chances making it as a programmer.

So in the vein of being cruel to be kind, you should either figure this one out on your own, or give up learning programming. Because like it or not, you will be held to a higher competency standard in terms of general computer knowledge if you want to continue on as a programmer.

Has nothing to do with programming.

It has nothing to do with programming, it has to do with Visual C++. All other compilers will open it and give option to compile, Build, and run. Visual C++ once opening a c file dosen't give that option. All the help files refer to C++ files not c. I am not hear to argue over programs or be told to look online or in the Help file I did that and that is why I am in hear. If you are not going to answer the question then please do not respond to the forum that is inconsiderate to thouse who may be of help.

So my solution didn't work for you?

I wonder if you were worried about inconsiderate items that you missed it.
