Yup! "start" is used to open programs/scripts in a new window, hence the behavior you were seeing.

Why are you using 'start'? Just run the program directly:

Code: [ Select ]

Run your programs from an existing command prompt; don't double-click them. (You're right, default behavior in Windows for command line programs is to run then close.)

It probably wants you to set the system time in the BIOS. The CMOS battery is responsible for keeping accurate time when the system is turned off; when it dies the system clock usually goes wonky.

Once you do that, you should be able to Save & Exit the BIOS and it should boot normally.

I think you should look into MinGW. It will give you a port of GCC for Windows and a bunch of useful "UNIX-y" tools.

Stay away from IDE's like Eclipse, Visual Studio, etc. until you're comfortable building and running on the command line.

Post Posted: April 16th, 2014, 6:20 pm

Side question: why are you trying to use Eclipse for this? In your other thread I thought you wanted to just compile/run via the command line, which I'd recommend if you're just starting out.

Eclipse is far too heavyweight for this, IMO.
