ok, so i've started c# programming. i am using the wikibooks book, c# programming, and (of course) the first program is "hello world". it won't work when i try to run it. here is the code:

using System;
namespace MyConsoleApplication
{
class MyFirstClass
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
System.Console.WriteLine("Hello,");
Console.WriteLine("World!");
Console.ReadLine();
}
}
}

can someone tell me what is wrong with that? i copied it exactly from the book, and i even tried copy-and-pasting it, but it still wouldn't work.

What exactly does not work? Does it crash? Not run? Does the console window start?

Are you compiling from the IDE or from the command-line? If you are compiling from within the IDE, then look for the Solution Explorer window in the IDE and right-click on your project. Select 'Properties'. A new window opens. Click on the 'Application' tab on the left. Check your output type and be sure it is set to Console Application. You may have it set to Windows Application.

I'm using the Visual C# 2005 Edition.

I used the exact code you gave (cut n paste)

I went to File --> New Project. I chose a Blank Project.

I added a new class called MyFirstClass

copied your code in. Built it and ran it.


It worked.

So it does compile?

To get the code window, go to the solution explorer and open the file you want or add a new class under Project->Add Class.

again, did the same as sknes and it worked just fine.

Did you try what S2 suggested? Sounds like he really nailed your problem on the head.
