Okay, so here is my problem. I am trying to write a program to flat shade a simple cube. When I try to compile it says something about windows locking the disk. I am using Borland c++ 5, windows 98 (virtual pc) and am not using any librarys that are not standard with borland. (I wrote my own graphics routines) Does anybody know what is going on?

Odd error, maybe you should try looking at the permissions on the files and folders you''re using (make sure they aren''t read-only). Also make sure you have plenty of disk space for your object files and executable.

Thanks felisandria, I checked the file permissions, they were fine. I checked the hard drive space, it was a little low, so I deleted a bunch of temp files. Then I tried again. But it still didn''t work.

Does anybody have any other ideas?

If it makes any difference, I think it is compiled as 16 bit.
