Are you using Visual Studio? If so, you can run Visual Studio from the command line to compile your app...

devenv [Solution Name] /build [Build Config: Debug/Release]

No just  notepad. But i want to compile it on another machine that i don't have access to. So the person who is compiling it just has to double click on the batch file. Think i will try writing an exe that compiles the program

so i edited the file using the edit command from the dos prompt and it worked fine.
