Is there an easy way to get a simple console window open for cout calls? I just thought it would be a simple way to out put debug info and quicker (to check) than writing out to a file.

If you are using Visual Studio, just right click on your project -> properties -> linker -> system -> SubSystem, and set it to console.

Make sure you do it in debug mode, unless you want your users to see the console as well...
