Hi George,

Well done getting the build to work. As to the questions, the dos pop-up can be
removed by adding a compiler flag -mwindows (add it to the end of the line set
COMPOPT=... in "build gnubg.bat".

You should be able to copy the gnubg.exe that gets built into the program files
directory that the installed gnubg you have and then run it from there (although
it might not work it could need slightly different dlls).

BTW, does the latest build fix the problem you where having?
