Use VC++6.0 under WindowsXP(Home Edition)

Yesteday I install Visual Studio 6.0 into my XP system.

When I write a easiest program on it like
#include <iostream.h>
void main()
{
   cout<<"Hellow World!"<<endl;
}

The compiler error is :cl.exe error
why?
I try to reinstall the VS6.0,But show me the same error?

At the same time the Turbo C 2.0/3.0 can not use either
they report the error : can not creat ***.obj
?:( Ihave no idea now

Thank you.

the error you are getting sounds like it is a problem with you os. for some reson the file or folder you are writing to is locked at compile time.

check to see if you have any windows displaying the content of the folder were you are tring to creat the file. close them if you find any. also make sure the folder or the destination file are not set to read only. also make sure you have write and change permisions in the folder you are writing to.

these are a couple of the more common resons why you would get that message. but i asure vc++ works with win xp home.

Visual Studio 6.0 works fine on XP Home.

It would really help if you would provide some details about EXACTLY what you are doing and what error is being displayed.
