    Anyone know a nice C-compiler which will run under Win XP Pro? Preferably a completely free download. Also, I can't seem to install a boot manager; XP won't let me. Any hints?

    I don't own Win XP, but you might try an online search:

    Win XP\compilers\free

    You might be able to buy an IDE on eBay for a reasonable price. I purchased my Visual C++ 6.0 for $70.00 through an online auction several years back. There are deals out there.

    That was an answer?

    (perhaps I'll use question marks more frequently to cause unnecessary confusion?)

    Sorry, you must keep in mind I am a beginner at this computer stuff, so many acronyms mean nothing to me.

    xp boot managers

    I think, although correct me if im wrong anyone, that xp wont allow boot managers when using the NTFS file system, you could try converting it back to FAT32 and then trying to install.

    Turbo C is the best(no,not Turbo C++)...

    Whole set comprises of TASM T-debugger...

    Probably the best...



    bye!

    RE: XP Boot Manager

    ninjahamster et al:

    I think you're right with the fact that NTFS won't allow dual/multiple boot partitions. However, I would point out that reverting to FAT32 will remove the security features provided by the NTFS.

    FAT32 does NOT provide the same security descriptors that NTFS does, so if you intend to use any of the security (cough) "features" (such as encrypting file system settings, or EFS) of XP I'd think twice about converting to FAT32.

    If you want to run multiple O/S you'll likely have to ensure they all have their own volume (that way they all retain their own files and config info).

    Check the MS support site for more info (Microsoft Support Site )

    All the best,

    Yiffy!

    Well, in my experience, getting a really good quality freeware compiler is *not* easy. (At least for Microsoft-based systems, I like the Linux compiler myself.) Though I can't say I've tried very hard to look for one, my school gives me a compiler for free (Borland yay!).

    are you talking about RHL's?
