    c++ (Windows XP?)

    I've never really come across this before but the thought just poped into my head. We all know that windows XP doesn't have a dos mode other than its command, cmd dos programs that cant run normal applications. But when i compile my progs it has a file ext of .exe so does that mean i can run it on XP?
