    Use Turbo C++ 1.0
    or Turbo C++ 3.0 (this is better)

    MSVC++ 6.0 is 32-bit only. Like the others here have already said, you need to get a 16-bit compiler to make DOS executables.

    you don't necessarily need a 16-bit compiler, but you will have to deal with real time. in DJGPP you have a 32-bit interface and the freedom of a flat-memory module, www.delorie.com/djgpp bon appetite!

    msvc++ only compiles windows apps...if you want console, then download Dev-C++ 4, (5 has soo many bugs in it, its UNREAL!!!)

    Actually if you get on old school MSC compiler or MSVC++ 2.0 and lower you can do your dos stuff.

    Yeah, I've got MSVC++ 6.0 for all my 32-bit needs. I don't have 2.0 but I do have 1.5 which I use for all my 16-bit DOS needs.
