#include <iostream.h> int main (void) { cout <<"Hello World\n"; } -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ¿It doesnt do anything? What is wrong with it? (using Dev C++)

Probably it does do something but closes the program before the output is seen.
Try calling this before the end of the function:

system("pause");

The command prompt will pause until a key is pressed.

The "system" function is a standard C function and is declared in stdlib.h, so if your compiler doesn't check it by default it's a good idea to include stdlib.h, forgot to mention [grin]

#include <iostream.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
int main (void)
{
cout <<"Hello World\n";
system("pause");
}

#include <iostream.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
using namespace std;
int main (void)
{
cout <<"Hello World\n";
system("pause");
}
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
still all it says is press any key to continue...

<off the topic question> why does every one want to make a mmorpg?

Is that the only code that's there? That kinda should give a compilation error you see.. You should have to use 'std::cout' or 'using namespace std' afaik..

If you link with some things, the output might be redirected to a local file, for example stdout.txt..
