    Will Dev-C++ work with XP?

    Tried to do a search on this. Just wondering if XP is to far from DOS to work. Got 98 and looking to install XP.

    the compiler will run, yes, but what are you going to compile with it? If you are doing a DOS program it may not work, not the compiler the compiled program. I don't own XP so I don't know which DOS programs work and which ones don't.

    One thing I do know is the DOS programs in XP has major sound problems.

    Yes, it will. The console applications that MinGW (the default compiler) creates will work. If you're using true a DOS compiler, then you might have problems. My guess is you're not, so no worries.
    Just because it's in a console window doesn't mean it's DOS.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?
