I have created a project in Borland C++ 3.0 (DOS version) on a windows NT machine.  Every time I run the project I get a terminate error because my compiler is 16 bit dependant.
What can I do to fix this and get rid of the error???

That is not because your program is 16 bit. That is because you use some things which disable to use under Windows, for example you can't work with ports. You must give more information what does your DOS program do and show some code. Or give me (I'm at av@protec.kiev.ua) your sources. I'll describe you what a problem. Good luck.

Been there.

In addition to what AVaulin said, you'll need to set up a .pif file for the BC++ compiler.  You need to emulate DOS as closely as possible without pissing off NT.  I did that to get rid of an error that happened each time I quit out of BC++.

Hope that helps.
