Chris I had a look at your easy D snapshot.
downloaded and ran on a windows 2000 Pro install and got errors immediately on
trying to run the console . Looks like some sort of permission problem.
Think its mostly self explanatory except for ease and comfort I use rebuild on
unix rather than dsss build ,it saves having to enter each "D" program in the
config file.

Text console output is attached 
What am I doing wrong?

 error box was "not a valid win32 application" 

and also it said "access violation" in the console window Also while you are there I looked at your site but it seems you have moved server again and I did not see anything on the cheque entry project there . Is there any progress or is it dead?

I'm not sure but I think you get that error because you also have a 
dsss.conf file in the same directory that doesn't contain 
"[C:\dmd\mystuff\SliderTest.d]". I think I've got similar errors. Either 
use "dsss build file.d" or use a dsss.conf file, there seems to be a 
conflict if you use both in the same directory.

I found that when I try building something and I'm not currently in that = directory that it fails to build. The problem building with rebuild is that all of the libraries (DWT,=20 Arclib, etc.) are with DSSS and are included to rebuild when DSSS runs.=20 It sounds to me like you tried to build a DWT app without DSSS, and=20 for some reason the build with rebuild didn't fail outright (which I=20 think it should have) and then you tried to run it, and it didn't link=20 against DWT as it should, and so it was just a few kilobytes of=20 assembler short of a full program. Or it was malformed by a confused=20 linker, etc. DSSS could perhaps be a little more forgiving on Win32=20 platforms when you don't play with it *just* right, but given the=20 alternatives (building by hand, with makefiles, etc.) I'm more than=20 willing to accept it the way it is. :-)
