I'm using Allegro in Code Blocks on Windows 7. I have no trouble when I run a program on gfx_autodetect, but as soon as I add gfx_autodetect_WINDOWED then all hell breaks loose...OH NO IT"S WINDOWED AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Ok...sorry...

What happens is the program actually opens up fine, but when I go to close it a window pops up that says, "filename.exe has stoppped working".

Here is the code:

allegro_init();
install_keyboard();
set_color_depth(16);
set_gfx_mode( GFX_AUTODETECT_WINDOWED, 640, 480, 0, 0);

Here is the code:
No. That's not the code. The code actually compiles. This code does not.

I know practically NOTHING about C++ or anything. All I know is that I have Code::blocks downloaded on my computer lol.
*cringe*

You first must master the language before you can start building complicated things, such as games. If programming in general is included in your definition of "anything," then C++ will own you -- I speak from experience. You need to have mastered the general programming concepts before learning C++. Might I suggest python with pygame?

hello friend, I'm from Brazil and I am translating this text by google translator ...
well, the program ends in disaster because you is not keeping it open correctly ...
code and analyze the following note:

#include <allegro.h>

int main()
{
//------------------------------------------------------------------------//
allegro_init(); //--this initialize the allegro--//

install_keyboard(); //--this change de keyboard functions--//

set_color_depth(16); //--specifies number of colors that will work--//

set_gfx_mode(GFX_AUTODETECT_WINDOWED,640,480,0,0);//--define the program windowed (windowed), with x = 640 e y = 480----------------------------//

//-----------------------------------------------------------------------//

while(!key[KEY_ESC])//--while not pressing ESC will ---//
{
//here is executed the principal loop-//
//example:::
textout_ex(screen, font, "i am learning allegro !", 100,100,255,-1);
}
//------------------------------------------------------------------------//

allegro_exit(); //exit the allegro---//
return 0; // say to the application is correctelly finalized--//
} //--end the main()--///
END_OF_MAIN() //THIS IS REQUIRED WHEN WE ARE USING ALLEGRO FOR COMPATIBILITIES

/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/--/-/-/--/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-

If you are doing everything correctly and the error still persists, try instead to autodetect the video driver, specify it manually ...
