c++.idde - Debug doesn't work in tutorial

I am learning DM from the online tutorial at
http://www.digitalmars.com/ugr/chapter10.html and have reached "Running in
Debug Mode".  (I purchased the IDDE.)  However, when I hit 'Start/Restart
Debugging' I get a message on the output window that says, "Warning: This
debugger can only debug Win32 applications." and though the DigitalMars
header says "(Debug)", I'm clearly not in a normal debug mode, i.e., there
are no icon indicators in the project window.  The tutorial program,
tmldos.exe runs ok.

Do I need to install something else?  Is the tutorial project not a Win32
app?  If not, is there a tutorial that is?

I'm on a WinXP Pro machine and am running DM under a user account, if that
helps.

The debugger in the Win32 IDDE only works with Win32 apps. Chapter 10
develops a DOS app. To debug it, you need to run the Win16 IDDE which,
unfortuately, requires running under Windows 3.1.
