Hi,

I've got a command line C++ app written using vc++ 2005. I have been running it through a command line prompt on my win XP system for sometime. Now when I run it, the console just spits back an error saying "This program cannot be run in DOS mode".

Any idea why this would start all of a sudden? None of my compiler options seems to have changed?

Thanks

Try a complete rebuild. That usually only happens when a binary gets corrupted.

Hi DJ_AM_Juicebox,

It probably links a DLL that has changed and rebuilding the application makes it now compatible with the DLL.



Good Luck,
Kent
