You need to create a project, add the source files to it, compile it and fix the compiler type errors if any.
After this process, you will have an executable.
As for creating a setup program, you can use the free Wix Toolset.
It will integrate with Visual Studio so that you can create the setup program from Visual Studio itself.
You can download it from here - http://wixtoolset.org/[^]
Here is an extensive tutorial on Wix - http://wix.tramontana.co.hu/tutorial[^]
«_Superman_» I love work. It gives me something to do between weekends.
Here's how to make a simple .exe (application executable program) in Windows, copy this source to a file that will call main.cpp
// We will declare our header files as our first column
#include<iostream>// Declare namespaces as the second column
// "int main()" serves as the starting point for our program
cout << "Hello user!" << endl;
Compile this and go to your project's folder and double-click on a folder called bin and then double click on the folder called debug. If its not in there click on the other folder which is called release, if you managed to accidently compiled a release version of your program.
And there it is, your first made .exe file.

Programming in C and C++ now, now developing applications, services and drivers (and maybe some kernel modules...psst kernel-mode drivers...psst).

no, nor of visual studio files are included ,it has configure files and other files that could make it done easily on linux ,i can build and install it on linux , but i need to build it just for windows ,
well, thank you for interesting ,
any way if you have see the link ,and downloaded the source code , you may have better vision because i started programming in c++ from no more than one years ,and this is the first time that i want to do something like that,most of my program were no more than one or two C++ files and a header, this my programming background ,so i don't know how to explain more than that..
i really need help and advice to explain more..
Hi every one, I'm not sure where should I ask my question,
I want a link or eBook which explain clips programming but with an expert system example step by step. not form the beginning. I have search the net but I couldn't find what I'm looking for.
I would be so thanks full if some one could help.
I am capturing desktop by using BitBlt.
Without CAPTUREBLT, I can capture desktop without capturing layered windows in Windows XP.
In Windows Vista or Windows 7, there is a problem with this, but when I stop the Desktop Windows Manager service, this can be solved.
But in Windows 8, I cannot stop this service, so I must find another solution to capture the desktop screen without layered windows.
Can anybody give me an idea?
Thank you very much.
We are running a boost unit test using command line (cmd). The command is: C:\> /c "D:\MyExecutable.exe" --run_test=testcase1,testcase2,testcase3, --report_format=xml --report_level=detailed --log_format=xml --log_level=all >test_log.xml 2>test_report.xml
The output format is in XML. I would like to have the call stack for the failed test cases. Is it possible to write the call stack trace in test_report.xml or test_log.xml ? Is there any macro or Boost API can help me achieve this?
AFAIK I have to delete dynamically allocated memory myself. I dynamically allocate the QFile* "settingsFile" and want to delete it as soon as I do not need it anymore. So why do I get a memory access violation message?
I also know that Qt automatically disposes all allocated objects as soon as they derive from the QObject base class, but I want to write to the file later, therefore I have to clean up the allocated memory by myself.
