Codes of c++


Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 is an integrated development environment, or IDE, released by Microsoft in 1998. An IDE allows the user to create a computer application by using pre-designed functions, tools and other resources. Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 features a source code editor, a compiler, a debugger and graphical user interface.

Install Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 on your computer. The installation process is fairly simple. Just follow the prompts. Run the program. A window will appear asking you to create a new application. On the "Project" tab, choose "Win32 Console Application." This means that you will create an application with an EXE file extension that can work with 32-bit Windows operating systems after compiling the project. Also, specify the project's name and the location where it will be saved. Click "OK." Click"OK" in the dialog box that will appear next. You will choose to start an open project. Double-click on the form in the center of the screen. Type: #include <iostream.h> int main() { cout <<"This is my first project!!! Hello everybody! \n" return 0; } Press "F5." This will build and run the project. Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 will compile your project into an EXE file. Then it will open this file. You will see a new window open in which you'll see your greeting, " This is my first project!!! Hello everybody!" Press any key to exit the application. http://elvis.rowan.edu/~kay/cpp/vc6_tutorial/ http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/visualc/ee340952.aspx

FTP Connection using Windows 7 64 bit


Individual applications that transfer files using FTP may have their own methods for monitoring transfer speed. But for a single method that works across all applications, consider an external bandwidth monitor. Windows no longer tracks bandwidth usage, but several free third-party tools display your upload and download speed. Close other Internet programs besides your FTP transfer tool, and check the bandwidth monitor to determine your transfer rate.

Net Speed Monitor
If your computer uses the 32-bit version of Windows 7, download Net Speed Monitor 2.5.4.0 for Windows. If your computer instead uses the 64-bit Windows 7 version, download Net Speed Monitor 2.5.4.0 for Windows (msi, x64). (See Link Below.) http://www.floriangilles.com/software/netspeedmonitor/download/ Run the installation program. The license agreement will open. Accept the agreement. Click "Next." Further options will open. Click "Next." Click "Install." A dialog box will ask whether you want your task bar to display the "NetSpeedMonitor toolbar." Click "Yes." Another dialog box will open. Click "Save." Run your FTP transfer. Check the transfer rate from the task bar. Bandwidth Meter b> Download the Bandwidth Meter installation program. (See Link Below.) http://www.bandwidth-meter.net/freedown.htm Run the program. Click "Next" through the options. Choose "Install" when the final step prompts you to. Run your FTP transfer. Check the transfer rate from the task bar. Hope this helps.

Hello,

Which program is it?

Hello,
This is what I did.
1. Turn On PC as normal
2. Wait for prompt error to show up
3. When it appears, Run Task Manager (here you can see the task running the Error Prompt)
4. Right Click on the task and Choose > Go To Process (will take you to processes Tab)
5. See the highlighted Process, Right Click and Choose Open File Location
6. Windows Explorer will appear and you can see the Application Folder (name of application)
In my case, a 'browser toolbar application' was trying to auto initiate itself
7. Open Uninstall Programs > Search for Application Name > Uninstall (NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT UINSTALL IF THE PROGRAM IS A CORE FILE like Windows related program)..
8. Restart PC.....its gone :)


Another alternative:

Do a system restore. Click start > program > accessories > system tools > system restore.

Restore it to a known good date when your computer was fine.


I hope this helps.
