I recently received source code written in C for a game and I want to run it in VC++. But I don't know where to start. Can anyone help?

    If the code is for DOS - you can use VC++ v1.42 (very old one). All higher versions work with code for Windows. Simply create a new project and add the C files to it. Then compile.

    You forgot to add: "And pray that you have all the libraries it depends on" :)

    The way I see it... Well, it's all pretty blurry

    What type of project do I create? Win32 application or Win32 Console application? Should I create it as an empty project? Is there anything else I need to do since it's written in C and not C++?

    What kind of application was it in a first place? Maybe, use Console project.
