I have downloaded v8.28 software.  I go to DOS command line and type SC Hello.C.
The message displayed "Requires Win32".

I am running a DOS Window in ME.  What must I download (and where) to get Win32?
Also, is there any introductory source code samples for DOS/Windows on this
site?

Thanks,
Chuck

WinME is a Win32 implementation. What you need is to open a console window. You could try the ctools.zip (on the home page) for some samples.

If you restart windows in MS-Dos prompt, then sc won't work.
This happens in Win9x. Windows ME cannot allow restarting in MS-DOS
more. So did you really restart your machine in MS-DOS prompt only?

It is possible to start WinME in DOS mode , either with the rescue disk, or
by using a modified IO.SYS (available on the Net, but not from MS - it's a
hack ;).

I knew that :-)

I was only referring to whether you do what "normal" people
would do - click on start -> shutdown -> Restart Windows in MS-DOS prompt
like in Win9x.

Obviously you are not an average Windows user.
