Is there any asm or compilers that can output NE executables??????????

Ne executables are the file format used by win 3.x

Check the C/C++ compiler packages from Digital Mars and Open Watcom. Both of them, they support 16-bit Windows coding.

I have an old borland c++ compiler that does this, and it seems to be the full version as well.  Very nice IDE for such an ancient compiler. If you like I can send you a copy, it would be a fairly large file updload though.

shism, MASM can do it if you get the old 16bit linker - I think it's at somewhere.

, that would be a violation of copyright...

You can get the 16-bit linker from :
The correct linker for building 16 bit MSDOS applications using
the version of ML.EXE that comes with MASM32.

fodder: Are you the copyright police?  My compiler was included with an old c++ book that I used to have, (or I might still have, I'll have to take a look)

shism2: If you need this c/c++ compiler, I can send you a cd with this compiler on it, just email me with your address and I'll send it.

No I'm not GorillaCoder, I just don't want the forum getting into trouble from what would at a first glance seem like copyright breach - hope you understand this :)

just a thought: since there are free borland command line tools 5.5, and there is no inside 16-bit linker in it (at least in what i saw), it is possible 16-bit tools are just forgotten :) (a 5.01 package what i saw has tlink) ;)

If you need just the linker then I could give you the tlink linker that comes with my old win3.1 borland compiler.  Let me know, and I'll send it to you over email or whatever.
