I have a make file that I would like to compile. I have VS2005 installed etc, but was wondering how to build a make file via DOS.

All my searching brings me to Linux based make options, and I've never used it in DOS before.,

Open the "Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt" (via the "Tools" menu), navigate to the makefile and type

nmake.exe /f MyProject.mak CFG="MyProject - Win32 Release"

(or "MyProject - Win32 Debug" respectively)
