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.

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)
