hi once you install another system in preference to factory default in your case vista im afraid you have probably wiped all the on board data that deals with factory default.the only recourse is if your system is sata.you could install a second hard drive ,and put vista on that drive.hope this helps.
There are compatability issues with many of the 32 bit software titles. The 64 bit version of Vista is not backwards compatable with all titles of 32 bit Vista. You will have to down load the patch or 64 bit version of the titles you are having trouble with. You can try to run it in compatability mode but things like Turbo C/C++ will not function in that mode correctly. They won't debug right.
Before going to the details u have to create a folder (any name will do). Here we name it as Turbo
Copy the TC into the Turbo folder
Run the DOSBox 0.72 from the icon located on the desktop or from the location of the installation folder
Then u are presented with two screens which look like the command prompt in Windows
Now u are presented with two screens. One with a Z prompt. U can ignore the other screen.
There type the following commands at the command prompt [Z]:
Mount [Type in any alphabet that u wish except z] [Type the source of the turbo C] press enter
Now , Type in the following commands after the Z prompt:
Z: mount d c:\Turbo\ [The folder TC is present inside the folder Turbo]
* Now u should get a message which says: Drive D is mounted as a local directory c:\Turbo\ ***
Now type d: to shift to d: prompt .
D: cd TC [The contents inside the folder Turbo gets mounted as a virtual drive (Here D drive)
D: cd Bin
D: TC or Tc.exe [This presents u the Turbo C++3.0 screen]
On the Turbo C++ goto Options>Directories>Change the source of TC
to the source directory [D] ( i.e. virtual D: refers to original
c:\Turbo\ . So make the path change to something like D:\TC\include and
D:\TC\lib respectively )
In order to get the full screen use the key combination of Alt and Enter
When u exit from the DosBox [precisely when u unmount the virtual drive
where Turbo C++ 3.0 has been mounted] all the files u have saved or
made changes in Turbo C++ 3.0 will be copied into the source directory(The directory which contains TC folder)
It is a good idea to backup your files in the source directory prior to running DOSBox 0.72
For additional help go through the readme file located in the installation folder or look on the website of the DOSBox forum.
The above procedure has been successfully implemented on Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit
IMP : Don't use shortcut keys to perform operations inTC because they might be a shortuct key for DOSBOX also . Eg : Ctrl+F9 will exit DOSBOX rather running the code .
Turbo C++ 3.0 is made for MS DOS 6.22 environment. In windows also we can run Turbo C because windows environment provides all native services of DOS. But in Windows VISTA some of the services are revoked. So to enable them either Vista is to be reconfigured or some add-ins are to me installed.
Other versions those can work in Vista are BOROLAND C++ 4.5, VISUAL C++ 6.0, and Visual Studio 2008. But in all these the graphics header file <graphics.h> will not work. Try to find an appropriate graphics header file or copy graphics.h in the cource directory and use #include "graphics.h" command in your C Program.
