not a valid win32 application?

hi, i am linking a simple program to a file 'jvm.lib' (the JVM library, i am trying to write a simple JNI program, but that has little to do with my post i believe). I compile it using a makefile and BCC32 5.5. It compiles just fine, but when i execute i get a pop up window that says:

'Batchuser.exe is not a valid win32 application'

batchuser.exe is the name of the simple program i wrote. does anyone know how i can get this to compile and execute? thanks

Pedron, could you tell us something about your environment (95,98,ME,XP,2000)
and what the compiler flags are.

Are you sure the compiler is set to make a Win32 program?  There is a special section of code that must be placed onto the beginning of any program, and it appears the compiler didn't add it to yours.

I solved it through a friend. He helped me adjust my parameters being passed to the ILINK program, the makefile was this:
BATCH=C:\Java\1421\lib\jvm1.lib
batchuser.exe: batchuser.obj $(BATCH)

    ilink32 /Tpe/ap/c/x/Gn c0x32 batchuser surscf,batchuser,, \
         noeh32 $(BATCH) import32 cw32

batchuser.obj: batchuser.c
    bcc32 -IC:\Borland\Bcc55\Include -c -RT- -x- batchuser.c

and it works just fine! (except for the debugging part! =)  thanks!
