I am a nowise in programming. Can some please give me a C code that will delete files, whose locations are mentioned in a text file. For example, I have a text file (files.txt) with multiple file paths, one per line. The C program should read the text file and delete the files one by one.

I prefer C because I need to create a 16 bit exe. If someone know a way to create 16-bit exe from VBS, I would really appreciate that as well.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Read the file, line by line.
For each line, pass it to the remove function:
status = remove(strFilename);
if(status == 0)
   printf("%s file deleted successfully.\n", strFilename);
