    Lloyd,

    It is not possible to compile a stand-alone *Windows* program using the DOS compiler.

    You can embed DVSERVER into your executable so that it can automatically be extracted and executed, but your PBDK applications will *ALWAYS* require the DVSERVER program in order to execute.

    If you want to write stand-alone Windows applications then you'll need to switch to PB/DLL.

    Use the DVEMBED utility to create a single-EXE... this is covered in the PBDK doc's.

    JFYI, there was an update to PBDK's DVSERVER prior to is discontinuation... take a look at http://www.powerbasic.com/files/pub/pbdos/pbdk/

    If you email me at mailto:[email protected][email protected]</A> I'll send you the latest version of DVEMBED that I have here.

    The DVSERVER is a program that runs in the background when
    writing programs to include items from the PowerBasic
    Developers Kit.

    My real question here is "How can I make the compiled program
    a standalone like any other PB Program?"

    Hi

    You need it because it acts as a "bridge" between your dos and windows programme. Read your docs. You can embed the server if you need to.

    Why DVSERVER after Compile?

    Why must you have DVSERVER running after you have
    compiled the program to an .EXE?

    Is there a way to make the .EXE a standalone like a
    regular PB program?

    Thanks in advance,
    Lloyd
