A few points:

  1. _tmain is not standard C++
  2. What's in stdafx.h since you included all headers actually used by the program directly in the file?
  3. It doesn't do the same thing as the C# version or what androidi specified, as you use operator>> which stops extraction when it encounters a space; it doesn't read the whole line. Also the C++ version doesn't write a newline, and the C# version does.
  4. Explicitly initialization an std:: string with an empty string literal is pointless.

Tongue Out

Didn't want to find the setting to disable precompiled headers, but since you insisted... Tongue Out

#include <iostream>#include <string>using namespace std;int main(int argc, char* argv[]){        string entry;    cout << "Please enter your name.";    getline(cin, entry);    cout << "Hello, " << entry << endl;        return 0;}
