Of course you can
1) Select the "new" command on the file meno (or icon), A dialog will appear.
2) Select the project tab
3) Select Console Application
I have VC++ 5.0, and I've made some DOS apps.

Trillo.

Do you mean select win32 console application? WHat i want to do is take some C++ code and create an executable that can be run under DOS. Is this possible?

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

It's possible to run console applications in DOS mode under Windows, but not when you are at the "pure" DOS mode.

That's what i said... 'pure' (i.e. 16bit) programs ___CANNOT___ be created by VC5

OK,OK,.... I misunderstood, I meant that I've made DOS apps to run under the Windows' DOS mode... (it all depends on what you call DOS in these days)
