First, I am new to C++. (but not to coding)
I am using the Microsoft Compiler. and have a problem compiling.  I am sure that it is not the code, but I cant remember how to correct so that it can compile.  The error message says "Unable to start debugging...Cannot find the file specified". (I believe it is a property selection selection issue) can someone advise me please?
Thanks much-Annie

Are there any error messages when you are compiling? Also, check your project settings and make sure that these under "Debug" match the "Output" settings under "Link".

the compiler list it as a a "fail", and then an information window pops up with the message.. "Unable to start debugging...Cannot find the file specified".
 I dont see any output settings under debug.

>> the compiler list it as a a "fail"

So, what are the exact error messages and your corresponding source code?

My source code simply opens a blank screen. I didnt ask it to do anything. I just am starting to play with this code.

#include <iostream>
using namespace standard;

int main()
{
      return 0;
}

Aaah, got it - that should be

#include <iostream>
using namespace std; // <--- !!!

int main()
{
    return 0;
}

STL's namespace is called 'std', not 'standard'.
