Haxe Problems That Might Be My Fault

OK, so i’m like a complete beginner at coding and whatnot. Like the most coding I’ve done is using inspect element. And I’m probably doing something wrong, but I can’t run any haxe.exe things in the toolkit. They just kinda open and close. I have literally no idea what I’m doing. I probably need to install something. And when I mean open and close, they open for about a milisecond. Sometimes it opens normally but then it closes after I try typing. I feel really stupid. It also might have to do with my computer; it’s really old.

The .exe files that come with Haxe are meant to run on the command line. If you just double-click them from the file explorer, that won’t work. On Windows, you need to open a Command Prompt (or PowerShell) and run them from there to see the text output.

If you want a GUI environment, you should consider installing something like HaxeDevelop. Visual Studio Code is also popular among Haxe developers, but it’s a little more advanced.
