Download DEv C++

Learn about api reference replace newer api with 9x ones. I think it should go to C/C++ forum rather web development

Moved to Windows 9x forum for more attention

Although putting this thread into the C/C++ forum would also be appropriate, since this is specifically for an OS, it has a better chance of having people chime in here rather than in the coding forum which doesn't receive quite as much attention.

If you are not a programmer then you should know this:

Almost all good(and some bad) programs were writen in C or C++ language.

C and C++ is what you need to learn if you want to port existing programs to 9x platform.

Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 is the latest that works in win95, 98 and WinME.

Visual Studio 2005 is the last which may produce 9x compatible programs.

The only real alternative to Visual Studio is Borland C++ Builder v6.0.

There are many alternative "free" C++ compilers but they are all under some crazy license,
latest version of them do not work on 9x platform and they can not produce 9x compatible
programs.

here is some of them:


MinGW (GCC) Minimalist GNU for Windows

http://www.mingw.org

Open Watcom C/C++ Compiler

http://www.openwatcom.org


LCC-Win

https://www.cs.virginia.edu/~lcc-win32/

Orange C/C++ Compiler

http://www.members.tripod.com/~ladsoft/orange_c_compiler.html

Pelles C (Based on LCC)

http://www.smorgasbordet.com/pellesc/

Dev-C++ is just IDE which use MinGW (GCC) compiler.

Oh boy, months and still no progress I've done...
Might as well list programs which can write and compile 9x compatible code.
