I'm new to version 5.0 and I can't figure out why, when I run a program, it opens a DOS window. Furthermore, the window closes right after execution so I can't even see the output. Any help would be appreciated.

Borland C++ version 5.0 runs your program as a DOS program because the target of your program is DOS.

Change it to a Windows program in the TargetExpert if you want a Windows program (I think you it is best if you select easy Windows)

If your program don't require any user input, will the program run and close. Add a sort of pause, or wait for the user to hit a key.
