Post Text Not Screenshots   

When posting code, compiler messages, or really anything to the forums, please post text using UBB code tags (see UseCodeTags) rather than attached screen shots.

Not only do the screen shots require people to download them to their computers -- something many people are reluctant to do -- they are not searchable, cannot be indexed by search engines, and cannot participate in cut-and-paste.

Besides, making it more difficult for people to help you by putting extra steps in the way isn't a great strategy for encouraging people to spend their time to assist you.

Here is a page that explains how you can copy text from the Windows command prompt: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/copy-to-the-clipboard-from-the-windows-command-prompt/
