I got this problem as described by the link below,

C++ Hello World not showing output

and I was suggested to try opening the file using command prompt.
Here was what i did,

Command Prompt

Is that how we run an exe. using command prompt? Or I have misunderstood something?


Your problem is command prompt does not know anything about spaces in file names.

it thinks your exe name is FLTK and testing as a paramter to your application.

if you try "FLTK Testing.exe" with quotes as written it will probably run.

but i suggest that renaming your exe without spaces for easy access.

also if you press F and Tab probably command prompt encapsulates file name in quotes (") automatically.
