When I try and run this code:



I get a black screen. I'm running Windows XP Professional SP3 desktop with an old ATI Radeon 9800 graphics card. I took it from a YouTube tutorial, and on the tutorial maker's computer, it worked just fine. The Visual C++ 2008 Express install crashed halfway, but it finished after a restart. I updated my graphics drivers and restarted, and I also installed the November 2008 update, but didn't know where to put the October 2010 update. If any of this information looks wrong, please tell me.

Are you certain that the file has the correct name and that it is sitting in the same folder as the main.cpp?

Thanks, that was it. It looks really weird (probably because the edges of the sprite were anti-aliased), but otherwise fine.

If the edges look weird, its probably because of image compression. You'll want to avoid any image compression that changes any pixel colors.
