It depends there are many different IDE's and compilers, out there and it is a matter of preference as well as what OS you are using. For example if you are running a Mac then you need to find a Mac specific IDE. Personally I use Dev-C++,it is free,simple, runs on Windows, and the compiler is mostly standard, but again it is a matter of preference.

Anyways good luck in learning C++,I think you will find it relatively easy to get to understand, but if you need any help you can always ask me.

I'm interested in learning C++ too. Can you post some tips later on?

We're stuck with C# at school. It's basically Microsoft-proprietary Java. ugh

This is because the C++ standard main() is of integer type not of void type. Your book uses Microsoft's version of the main(), which is of course not standard and will only work in compilers made by Microsoft say Microsoft Visual Studio, which I believe you must buy after a trial period. You can still use your book however replace:

Code:
void main()
{
//Some code.....
}
with:

Code:
int main()
{
//Some code....
return 0;
}
