It's a compiler, not an IDE. Just to let you know, and it's free.

I don't use Dev C++, but I heard v4 is buggy in some cases, and some people say v5 is better than 4. But it's free anyway, so who cares? You are not paying a dime upgrading from 4 to 5 (unless you want to).

I''m using Dev C++ 5 right now I have used 4, both have worked great for me and 5''s debugger seems to work much better then any of microsofts ide''s that I''ve used. plus its FREE! and includes the source code.

By the way, your "problem" actually happens with all DOS programs run directly from the Windows GUI. If you ran cmd.exe and ran your program from it, it wouldn''t disappear. But Johnny''s solution is much easier to do.
