You have to give a hint to emacs that you want to format a c++ file.
You do that by naming the file before you try and format it.

Go to the file menu and click on the menu item 'Visit new File' go to
the directory you want to save your file, and type in your file name
(test.cpp) and click the open button.

Now paste your code into emacs.

Once emacs has a hint on what type of file it is formatting, then
it can format it.
