You should have received a second CD that says Visual C++ 1.52. If you didn't, which Visual C++ did you buy?

aurelio, thui's answer was 100% correct! Don't expect people to help you in the future when you don't clarify the question before you reject the answer.  We are only trying to help you.  If you say you have the CD we will assume you bought it.  Also your question is a common one because most people look on the  VC 4.00 disk for the 1.5x compiler. You can NOT download it legally for free because it is not in the public domain. If you can purchase it somewhere then do it quickly because Microsoft no longer supports it or will sell it in future C/C++ releases.  Just like they abanded DOS 6.22 - they dropped the 16-bit compiler. Look at Watcom  11.0 -  they still support both 16 & 32 bit platforms and your VC 4.00 will qualify you for the trade-up edition. It is a real bargain.  Good Luck ...

Please look at the question. The fact is i haven´t got any 16bit compiler (this VC was bougth time ago by someone i don´t know, and never used) and perhaps something like kburn's comment referring to watcom's compiler would have been more helpful to me.
