    Unless your OS is really DOS (not some emulation in say XP), then it isn't going to work.

    It's been at least a decade since anyone did any serious work with such old compilers, perhaps it's time you upgraded.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
