    Hi All,

    I have a problem doing the excercises in visual studio. It always wants me to create a console application which is fine but when it runs, the command window just opens then closes.

    Is there any way to keep the command window open until i decide to close it?

    Am using windows xp mainly (but sometimes venture upstairs to me vista box)

    Can't you just run 'cmd' to open the command window and keep it open ie type cmd into the run box first?

    This is a classic problem with console apps. I assume that it wants to create a console app because the excercise is a console item.

    The easiest way to fix this is to do as Blue says - open a console and run the command there.

    Another trick is to add a getch() call just before the exit() call. This will mean that the console stays open until you type something.

    Harry.

    Cheers guys, I found another way, add Console.ReadLine() as the last line and it should wait for a key to be pressed.
