    Did you tell your compiler to make a console app? It looks like it trying to make a Windows one.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I was having the same problem. I'm using version 5.5 but should work as well. You have to add the option to compile a windows app. Something like:

    bcc32 -tW main.cpp

    where bcc32 is how your compiler is called. Mine is like that and probably your's as well. -tW is the option to compile a windows app and main.cpp is the name of your fiel with the code
    Hope this helps.
    If this doesn't work try d/l the version 5.5 command line tools. It's free!

    IDE: emacs + make + gcc and proud of it.
