DOS4GW with Watcom V11.0 compiler
Posted on 1997-06-22
Just wanted some info about the .exe file that is created when you use the 32bit DOS4GW option with Watcom V11.0.
I gather that once the application is compiled and linked, you must supply the dos4gw.exe along with the built app. exe. true?
To run the application what is the syntax?
On my machine (one which has watcom on it) I only have to type the name of the exe file to run the app. However, on my friends machine I need the dos4gw.exe file AND I have to run the program using this syntax: dos4gw filename.exe.
Why don't I have to do this on my machine?
I'd prefer to just run the filename by itself. Can this be done?
Instead, I have had to resort to using a batch file to get around this problem. ie
dos4gw filename.exe %1
Any comments ??
