This extended mode is a little different than what I am talking about in class, but that is a further issue, it is not what causes the problem here. It looks like you forget to end your TeX source with
Code:
\bye
You can also type \bye after the asterisk and press enter.

This is the message what it says after pressing the button:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.3-1.40.12 (MiKTeX 2.9)
entering extended mode
("D:\Nóra\Munka\angol\plain TeX\01-takacs.tex")
*

Still unable to open even a one-word tex file.

Depending on what platform you are on, you can run "tex 01-takacs.tex", "pdftex 01-takacs.tex". If you use windows, in this TeXworks thing there is a button which tex's your file and opens a viewer. It may be that it thinks your file is LaTeX or something, make sure the button runs tex or pdftex, not latex or pdflatex.

I hope this helps.

I got stuck, because I cannot make a dvi file from the tex file. How can I do it?
It would be important in order to check and correct the mistakes I've done.
Thanks!

If you got stuck with your homework, please describe what you have done. (Don't just say I can't do it.)
