int main (int argc, char *argv[])
{

    printf("Hello World\n");

    printf("%x\n",__DMC__);
    printf("%s\n",__DMC_VERSION_STRING__);
}


If I run it with the last printf commented out, it works. 

C:\Working\test>test
Hello World
827

I was testing some code, for my "About" box, so I can show what compiler 
& version I was using (DMC of Course), but I get the error message 
above.

I copied the marcos right from the web page reference.
Suggestions.

Also, I downloaded the 8.36 update, and extracted it to my DM folder. 
The IDDE is still showing  7.51.  How do I determine if I have the most 
recent version?

Thanks!

I don't know. The following compiles and runs as expected: ----------------------------- #include <stdio.h> void main() { printf("%s\n", __DMC_VERSION_STRING__); } --------------------------------

Perhaps you need to download a later compiler version. That macro wasn't defined in earlier versions.

Ah, I got it now.. I had just downloaded the most recent and unzipped it. I went back to the Download page and caught the section about upgrading the CD. I downloaded each patch and unzipped them in order. The program now compiles correctly.. Thanks.. I thought by unzipping the most recent version, it would update all the appropriate files.. Obviously, I was wrong.. Thanks for your help Walter! -- Regards, Steve Topilnycky Top Cat Computing Web: http://www.topcatcomputing.com/
