To create an Allegro/Dev-C++ project that can be used to test the Allegro
installation, do the following:
- Start Dev C++
- Select File/New/Project
- Select Windows Application, enter the project name, and click OK
- Specify the folder that will contain the project and Save.
- Select File/Save All, specify the name for the cpp file, and click Save. This creates
a file named ProjName.dev along with the specified cpp file in the specified folder.
- Select the cpp file in the project tree on the left. This will
expose that file in the edit pane with default code showing.
