Now that's a program I've not worked with in a while ;-) I haven't used it since my early high school days in the 1990s. Turbo is a really old application that has been around for ages- unfortunately, being as such, it is only capable of developing 16-bit DOS applications, which has, for better or worse, gone the way of the dinosaur. In the x64-bit versions of Windows Vista and 7, all 16-bit native support has actually gone out the window in favor of 32-bit and 64-bit application development. This is why DosBox was invented- it is a true 16-bit DOS environment (much like command.com and CMD.exe used to be) that is capable of running all the older DOS programs that are no longer compatible with Windows. When you run Turbo from the DOSbox program, press ALT-ENTER and it will fullscreen whatever you're working with. Hope this helps, - Vern
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 .
Copy the “DOSBox0.72-win32-installer.exe”from http://www.download3k.com/Install-DOSBox.html
Install it with default settings.
Create a folder “Turboc” in your C:\> directory.
Copy your turbo c folder such as “TC” in the folder “Turboc”. This is shown in the following diagram.
<!Run the software you installed. Its icon is present on the your desktop.
This will run the software, as shown in the fig:
Write these lines in the screen: mount c c:\>Turboc
Following message will appear on the screen Drive c is mounted as local directory c:\Turboc\
Now write: C:
Now write: cd TC
Now write cd bin
Now write Tc.exe
All these steps are shown in the following figure:
Now following screen will appear:
10. Press Alt + Enter. Full screen mode of Turbo C will appear. [updated]IMPORTANT : Don’t use shortcut Ctrl+F9 bcoz it is a shortcut for dos box to exit
