c++ - Just downloaded DigMars, Cannot run sc.exe

Hello, everyone.   I'm Aurura, and I'm a C++ and DigitalMars newbie.  ;8^)

I cannot open the exe.  As soon as I click on it, it flashes on my screen for a
half second, then it's gone.  I have no idea why.

I've downloaded the .zip into My Download Files, and created a "DigitalMars"
folder in my Program Files for the files to be extracted into.

I use Win98, My computer uses 511MB of RAM and my hard disk space for this OS is
approx. 19Gig.

Also, where do I find the tutorial(s) from DigitalMars concerning the compiler?

Thanks,

Aurura

You need to open a console window and run it from there (also known as a

Welcome.

Because it is a win32 console program. Just like xcopy or move or dir, you must run it from a console window (aka 'Dos Prompt' or 'Command Prompt') The compiler does nothing without extra "command line arguments". (like xcopy)

Try a google search "c++ tutorial", you get lots of tutorials. Some also explain how to use a command line compiler.
