If you run a DOS based program from windows the DOS screen will only stay up for the duration of the program. So if the program asks for user input then you would be able to see the program.

The other way to run these programs is to go to the command screen and run them from there (but you have to type in the full path of the filename or change to that directory to run it).

Just because an app runs from a console, that doesn''t necessarily mean that it''s a DOS app. DOS is an operating system, not an interface.

i''m using bloodshed dev c++ and when i run anything it''s just the black screen that i suppose a typical program would run in. whether or not it''s DOS i can''t say with certainty due to lack of knowledge!
