Beginning C++ through Game Programming

closed account (LN7oGNh0)
I've just started this book, and It starts with the program but it does not say what console application to use... I could either choose a CLR Console application or a Win32 console application. (I am using Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express)

Does anyone know which one is used in the book?
You should probably use Win32 console application. I think CLR has to do with .NET.
If you have the third edition, go to page 383 called Appendix A
It will tell you exactly how to set it up

I tried that, but just got loads of errors. I also tried the other one. I downloaded the code then just copied and pasted it but it didn't work.

Here is the code I used:

// Game Over
// A first C++ program

#include <iostream>

int main()
std::cout << "Game Over!" << std::endl;
return 0;

Very simple, anyone know why it's not working?
Please tell us what kind of errors you get?
