I am looking for a freeware IDE compiler in which I can write Java, C, C++, Python, C#, and VB.net. I am having a problem with DevC++. When I run the code, the console window opens and closes in a flash and I don’t know what’s wrong.

Also can anyone tell me which Eclipse version should i download for C++ and Java?

    Yea...Netbeans is the best one for this!!

    You can use it for Java, C++ and many other languages.
    But for programming C++ in Netbeans, you need it install a plugin and a compiler for it.
    I recommend Cygwin C++ Compiler....You can download it for free.

      To stop the console from closing automatically, you can add the following header:
      #include
      Also, add the following line just before the program ends (before return):
      getch();

      That method is in no way recommended, because conio.h is a deprecated library, and it is not portable, but it works with DevC++.

      I recommend switching to a different IDE. I recommend Code::Blocks, because it automatically stops the console when your program ends, so you can see it.

    Sharpdevelop and Notepad++ must be your combination of consideration for a best freeware set of IDE.
