    Within my IDE there is an option to have BC use an alternate assembly program to start up your code. There should be a command line switch that does this as well. You might try using that - I've experienced some issues w/o using the alternate startup code within Windows.

    try pausing the program before leaving such as:
    getch();

    I believe she means the Borland C++ won't start(the actual compiler, not her program)
