    run a linker on the .obj to produce a .exe.

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz

    What compiler are you using and how are you compiling your program?
    It is too clear and so it is hard to see.
    A dunce once searched for fire with a lighted lantern.
    Had he known what fire was,
    He could have cooked his rice much sooner.

    Damn beaten to the punch. Thank you bogged down network... I know masm does that, though I would hope he isn't compiling C with an assembler. Are you using an IDE as a front end to your compiler? It may be easily fixed with one check box.

    Hah! If I were taking bets I would have put my money on a Borland compiler. Its been a while for me, but I think there are two buttons, one for compiling the other for building. Compiling does just that. Building links the files into an exe. Hopefully someone who uses this exact IDE will read your thread to give you exact instructions.
