    Does it get executed only once? What happens after that? Does the application exit? May be there is some code to exit the app inside functionMain? Just check.

    Re: What is wrong here

    I do not see anything wrong with the code. I tried on my machine and FunctionMain should be called. How did you verify that it is not called?

    On a side note, while(true) is the common paradigm for putting an infinite loop.
    Say no to supplying ready made code for homework/work assignments!!

    Hello,

    Problem lies not in the code you have shown but somewhere else, I feel. The code modified from what you have shown

    Code:
    do
    {
    	cout << "I am stuck in an infinite loop" << endl;
    	Sleep(5000);
    }
    while (1 == 1);
    prints the complaint I am stuck in an infinite loop every 5 seconds till I close the program manually.

    Just being curious: Why did you design it as an infinite loop?

    Regards,
    Pravin.

    Initialize i

    You must give some initial value to i. Do not think that it will be zero by default. If you do not initialize it, then it will have some garbage value.

    Instead of just writing
    int i;

    write
    int i = 0;

    Did you delete?

    I posted "Initialize i" in response to a post of yours. Now I do not see that post. Did you delete it?
