I'm not sure why I'm getting this error.

The compile file option produces no errors, however when I got to run the program, it spits out the error:"system cannot find the file specified".

I've even moved the file around and the system still can't find it. Any thoughts?

Here is my code along with the error message:

Do you see a typo?
