Hi:

How Should I compile a win32 application, so I do not get an ugly dos window
behind my win32 program?
Currently I use:
c:\dmc\bin\dmc.exe  File.cpp  /o /WA /L/ user32+kernel32+gdi32+comdlg32.lib

where File.cpp contains the winmain function. I used compiler version 8.35.10

Thanks!

PD: If you want a sample to compile try this simple code:

///////////////BEGIN FILE.CPP
#include <windows.h>

/* Make the class name into a global variable */
char szClassName[ ] = "WindowsApp";

/* This function is called by the Windows function DispatchMessage( ) */
LRESULT CALLBACK WindowProcedure(HWND hwnd, UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM
lParam)
{
switch (message)                  /* handle the messages */
{
case WM_DESTROY:
PostQuitMessage(0);        /* send a WM_QUIT to the message queue */
break;
default:                   /* for messages that we don't deal with */
return DefWindowProc(hwnd, message, wParam, lParam);
}
return 0;
}

int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hThisInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR
lpszArgument, int nFunsterStil)

{
HWND hwnd;               /* This is the handle for our window */
MSG messages;            /* Here messages to the application are saved */
WNDCLASSEX wincl;        /* Data structure for the windowclass */

/* The Window structure */
wincl.hInstance = hThisInstance;
wincl.lpszClassName = szClassName;
wincl.lpfnWndProc = WindowProcedure;      /* This function is called by windows
*/
wincl.style = CS_DBLCLKS;                 /* Catch double-clicks */
wincl.cbSize = sizeof(WNDCLASSEX);

/* Use default icon and mouse-pointer */
wincl.hIcon = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);
wincl.hIconSm = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);
wincl.hCursor = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW);
wincl.lpszMenuName = NULL; /* No menu */
wincl.cbClsExtra = 0;                      /* No extra bytes after the window
class */
wincl.cbWndExtra = 0;                      /* structure or the window instance
*/
/* Use light-gray as the background of the window */
wincl.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH) GetStockObject(LTGRAY_BRUSH);

/* Register the window class, if fail quit the program */
if(!RegisterClassEx(&wincl)) return 0;

/* The class is registered, let's create the program*/
hwnd = CreateWindowEx(
0,                   /* Extended possibilites for variation */
szClassName,         /* Classname */
"Windows App",         /* Title Text */
WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, /* default window */
CW_USEDEFAULT,       /* Windows decides the position */
CW_USEDEFAULT,       /* where the window ends up on the screen */
544,                 /* The programs width */
375,                 /* and height in pixels */
HWND_DESKTOP,        /* The window is a child-window to desktop */
NULL,                /* No menu */
hThisInstance,       /* Program Instance handler */
NULL                 /* No Window Creation data */
);

/* Make the window visible on the screen */
ShowWindow(hwnd, nFunsterStil);
/* Run the message loop. It will run until GetMessage( ) returns 0 */
while(GetMessage(&messages, NULL, 0, 0))
{
/* Translate virtual-key messages into character messages */
TranslateMessage(&messages);
/* Send message to WindowProcedure */
DispatchMessage(&messages);
}

/* The program return-value is 0 - The value that PostQuitMessage( ) gave */
return messages.wParam;
}
