Hello!

I have just installed Borland C++ 5.0 on my computer. When I start a new project as an EasyWin application I get the message "Can´t debug 16 bit executables. Run without debugger? (Y/N). If I choose yes it works otherwise it won´t work.

The real problem appears when I try to exit Windows 95. Then I get the message "CAPDOS32 you have to exit this program before you exit Windows" Then the hole system crashes.

What shall I do?

I understand what you mean but there is no "Program" tab in the properties dialog only a "General" tab.

If I try to dubleklick on the capdos.exe icon I can change the properties thet way but I cannot save the settings before closing. It says that "this component must be run from the Borland C++ IDE". Is there another way to change the properties for capdos32.exe.
This is not a C++ question but I hope you want to help me anyway.
