Press 'start' button, then 'run' write cmd+enter and you can type your DOS commands.

I think you should clarify your question.
What is exactly what you want ? To call DOS commands from a win32 app, to create a DOS-like console in win32?

Maybe the c system() function is what you're looking for?

Cheers

Visual Studio creates the compiler and linker programs as a subprocess and redirects the standard handles (stdin & stdout) using pipes. Check these out:

CreateProcess()
Pipes Reference

Hope this helps

EDIT:
Well I couldn't find it but I typed "redirect console output" into google and got a good link for you.

This might be what you are looking for. I use something similar to open up a console to write debug output to in my programs.
