    .exe problems

    Well i came to you guys a while ago with some compiler problems and I finally got that sorted out. I found a good C compiler (Miracle C). And I finally made a exe file. Well when i run it it brings up a black box then dissapears when it should post a message. What am I doing wrong?

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    A pure dos app *should* have a pif file once the exe is run once... at least in Win9x Right click on that and under properties, uncheck close on exit. You can also use ALT+Enter to force full screen text mode. Use again to toggle to windowed mode.... all of that is assuming that you're using windows as your OS.

    The faqs already provided are good for explaining how to handle that in your program.
    I haven't used a compiler in ages, so please be gentle as I try to reacclimate myself. :P

    Where do you get this? I've written many DOS apps in Win9x and if they all created a .pif, I would have stopped writing them! You must create a shortcut to get a .pif file, or copy the .exe to your desktop.
