    Fullscreen .exe window in Borlandc

    I've been creating small aplications and i've always wondered if there was anyway to open a fullscreen dos window (program.exe) under Windows. I've went around it by executing my program in the Borlandc IDE, but now i have .exe files to be moved on different computers and the programs require fullscreen.

    The solution i found (i'm not a lazy bastard) was to change the properties of the .exe file, resulting in a shortcut which indeed opens the file in fullscreen mode. But i'm not quite happy with that.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for the ex-abrupto introduction. Didn't have much time on my hands, maybe that's why i missed that topic. The thing is none of the variants works.

    I am using Borlandc and the DOS IDE, not the bcw.exe; under windows xp

    I recommend upgrading to modern compiler and IDE.

    There's Code::Blocks, Dev-C++, Microsoft Visual Studio Express and Borland (for windows) - all free.
