To compile the program hello.c: \dm\bin\dmc hello should do it.

Save which files? DMC: cd \ unzip dmc.zip should do it. For hello, that is short for "hello.c", and you create it like you would any other text file.

 program close

Open a command box (the "C:\" icon in Programs>Accessories). cd to the directory where the executable is. Then run the executable again. This time, you shouldn't see a console box, but you should see the actual output of the program. Theoretically, this should be "Hello World". :-) -scooter
