I wrote first programme and ran it using create new programme/c++/windows/console. Everything worked fine. I created another with the same method, it has no errors but when I run it, the previous console window appears. What am I doing wrong?

    Which version of Visual Studio are you using?

    When you created the second program did you create a new project?

    Or did you just add a new C++ (*.cpp) file to the existing project?

    Are you using one Solution with one project in it, or one Solution with
    two projects in it? Or two Solutions with one project in each, etc.?

    How you created the Solution, Project(s), and source code files can affect
    what happens when you do a Build and Run. So you need to describe exactly
    what steps you took to create the second program.

    If there are two Projects in one Solution you must specify in the Properties
    which one will get executed.

    Hi AnneMarieLacey-0659,

    According to your description, do you mean that the second program displays the same result in the console? If so, please try to modify the output value in the method, then re-build and re-run your second program.

    If not, could you please provide more details about creating second program and the related code snippets?

    Look forward to your feedback.

    Best Regards,
    Dylan

    You Might Have Probably Missed the Main Function or Something Else
