Re: [VC++5] Executing circle.exe from outside compiler

VC executes things as if it were in the root of your project folder.
ie: you have a project called circle, and you compiled at as a release,
MSDEV is installed in c:\program files\msdev

your project folder would be:
C:\Program Files\Msdev\Projects\Circle

your executable is:
C:\Program Files\Msdev\Projects\Circle\Release\circle.exe

when you select execute on the menu, it runs the following line:

This can be seen on the project settings.....

What this all means is that in order to run circle outside of VC, you have
to open up a dos prompt.  Switch to the root directory of your mud
(c:\program files\msdev\projects\circle) and type release\circle

hope this helps you :)
