Hello, I have recenty picked up Borland C++ v5.01 after using v4.5 at our schools computer lab for a long time.  My questiong is, how do I get programs to execute in v5.01 like they do in v4.5?  When I used to run programs using v4.5, the program was run in a text based window, supplied by the borland compiler.  Upon completion, this window would stay open and I would be able to print the output of my program.  Now with v5.01, whenever I run a program, it is executed in a dos-shell window.  Once the program is complete, the window immediately disappears.  Is there something I can do to get v5.01 the execute programs the same way as v4.5?  I am writing programs for one of my college classes and I need to print out the output and submit it.  Can someone help me please...  I hope I have specified enough info.  Thanks in advance..

Was the 4.5 app running in an EasyWin window?

If it's not to critical how the program works there are a couple of hacks you can use to keep the program active so you can examin its output.  Another option is to put a loop in main() that tests for a certain key stroke and then exits.

Do You produce DOS or Windows ( EasyWin ) .exe ?

Ok..  I figured out how to change the taget type to EasyWin, however, now whenever I go to run the program I get message that says "cannot make" and nothing else about why...  Actually I did get one program to run(somehow..) in the easywindow, but it said it couldn't debug 16-bit exe's.  Can I change something so that the program can be debugged upon execution?  Oh, and thanks for the info and selecting easywin.

I think that another way is to write getch() on your program and until you don't press any key the dos windows won't close.

good luck!
