    DJGPP compiler

    I'm not sure if I installed it. I mean, I installed it, I think. Okay, it came with my copy of "C Unleashed" and I wanted to use it for game programming (it also came with allegro). I want to compile allegro so I can then continue to program in MSVC++.

    Hmm, the readmes for Allegro are quite numerous, and I'm a bit unclear on the problem.

    If it's an allegro problem, you may want to head for www.allegro.cc
    If it's a DJGPP problem, you might want to hit www.delorie.com

    Allegro will only work with DJGPP. It doesn't support MSVC++.

    Windows DLL (all400_bin.zip) - This includes the three Allegro DLLs (standard, debugging, and profiling) prebuilt. It also includes a batch file that will allow you to compile Allegro with MSVC (the main Allegro source package is also required) without the need for DJGPP or MingW.
    From www.allegro.cc

    I don't really know how to do whatever Garfield wants to do, but I'm fairly certain it can be done.

    It doesn't matter. You can use MSVC++6 to do all the stuff they teach in 'C Unleashed'. You don't need Allegro, and if you did need a graphics libary than use Direct X.
