What am I doing wrong ??

I'm trying to get started with DM and I can't seem to get a simple win32
console program to build.
I'm using the win32 IDDE.

The .def file:

EXETYPE          NT
SUBSYSTEM        CONSOLE


The code:

#include <iostream.h>
void main ()
{
 cout << "Hello\n";
}


The build output:

Program
