Can anybody temme how to run a pop up window TSR program written in C .....

Why in the world do you need to create a TSR? Those are about twenty years obsolete, and pretty much only usable on a true DOS system.

That's what I thought (ancient compiler and modern OS). TSRs are a kludge to get around MS-DOS's multi-tasking weaknesses. In Windows, I suspect you'll get all kinds of protection errors when trying to run one. Maybe if you explain exactly why you think you need a TSR ("pop up notepad" is not helpful), I can show you how to do it properly on Windows.

In terms of multi-tasking, the design of Windows is such that TSRs are unnecessary. If you want a background process, a Windows service is the correct solution.

Actuly that notepad is a part of my prjct... I can mail u d cmplete code wdout errors if u give me ur id... My id was SNIPPED
