Hi all, I would like to build code for an embedded i386 processor. I would like to use my visual C++ development environment. Is it still possible to build 16bits binaries with visual C++ ? Thanks

I believe there is an embedded version of VC++. I know I have seen it on my school's MSDN site. "Embedded tools for VC++" or something like that.

You would probably have to downgrade your compiler (cl.exe) and linker, I think VC++ hasnt supported 16 bit compilation since 5.0 or 4.2 or so.

Good luck finding the older versions.

Edit: i386 does support 32 bits, unless your going to be running DOS in it.
