Cannot find file specfied C++ RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just downloaded visual C++ 2008 express edition from the dreamspark website.  I registered my product right away.  Then I wrote a little hello world program, just to see if it worked, and when I hit the green play button to debug it, an error message pops up saying "Cannot find the file specified" which is a .exe file.  When I compile the program it says, "0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped".  Can somebody help me resolve this issue?  Thank you all very much for your time.

    Also my O.S. is Windows 7 Home Premium.

  • Alright, I downloaded Visual C++ 2008 express edition on another computer of mine, wrote the hello world program again, and I get the exact same results: cannot find the file specified.  Is there anything you need to do prior to writing a program like settings-wise?  It seems as though I'm missing a step or something in this process.  Any help would be great seeing as how Microsoft charges for help over the phone or email and I'm flat broke.
