i'm using MS visual studio 6 and i do code and run some programs. But i'm interested in knowing how to run a program without necessarily opening c++ compiler, i.e. has to be a stand alone program like the way we run an install agent. Or even creating an icon whereby upon clicking should run the program and should have a graphical user interface.
hi, more help
When you compile the program, it generates an .exe file. Drag that anywhere you like and double-click on it to your heart's content. If you want a graphical user interface, then you have to write one.
Browse to the folder where you have source code and you will see a folder like Debug and Release and you will find the executable (.exe) file inside it.
