Maybe try to put the completed exe on the desktop.
Then click to the program with the right button and then
set the Windows compatibility mode.

How to Run Turbo Pascal Full Screen mode on Windows 7


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

HOW TO RUN TURBO C IN 64 BIT WINDOWS 7


Hi,

Turbo C/C++

64 Bit operating systems like Windows Xp64, Windows Vista64, and Window 7 will no longer run 16 bit applications and this includes Turbo C 2.01/Turbo C++ 3.0/3.1 or the programs they produce.
Turbo C 2.0 was first released in 1989, Turbo C++ 3.1 in 1991 making these programs nearly two decades old. They are just too old to run on modern PCs.

Upgrade To Modern Compiler

Note that Turbo C/C++ is very very very very old and produces 16 bit programs which no long run on many modern computers. So the best advice is to upgrade to a new compiler. There are many free compilers out there that you can use.

Free Compilers:
  • Microsoft Express 2008 -- Great compiler and comes with a nice IDE (Visual Studio)
  • MinGW -- Command line compiler but there are many IDEs that use it such as Code::Blocks, Eclipse, Dev-C++
  • Borland C++ 5.5 -- Will compile Turbo C++ programs (including graphics.h) but produces 32bit code (slightly better than Turbo C) Only includes command line tools.
  • DigitalMars -- Its still old but at least it produces 32bit programs (better than Turbo C). You might stumble across D++ which is a very powerful language derivative of C++.
  • OpenWacom -- Again, nearly as old as Turbo C, but it produces more modern 32bit applications! (this project is still active too).
If you are just working with C there is:
  • Pelles -- and excellent modern C compiler and IDE. Pelles also has the new TR1 libraries available so you can use regex and other new features. As well as support for many older libraries.
  • LCC-Win32 -- Used as the basis for many of the research compilers.
  • Tiny C -- is said to produce very fast programs.
.
All of the above are Free and all excellent replacements for Turbo C which is so old it will not even run on your computer.


Regards.

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.

Running graphics c++ programs in TC++


TC++ is 16-bits and 16-bits programs are not fully Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 compatible. Windows emulates the older 16-bits environment using "NVTDM", but direct hardware access is (by design) still not possible (which is - besides unhandled program exceptions - the main cause for such error messages).

The only - structural - solution is to get a more modern 32 bits C++ compiler instead of TC++. You can find a list of free 32 bits Windows compilers here: http://www.thefreecountry.com/compilers/cpp.shtml

You might have to adapt the existing C++ code a little to the new compiler you choose.

When you really want to continue using TC++ you could use try the free "DOSBox" emulator (which has pretty accurate DOS emulating,. much better than Windows itself) or create a virtual machine with DOS or Windows 3.11 ...

Turbo-c++ is not installed in full screen


Hi sagar,

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.

Please revert to me if having problems.

You can try running the 16 bit app in compatibility mode. Right click on the app's exe, click on properties, and select compatibility, then tick the box labeled "run in compatibility mode", then select Windows 98 from the now available drop down box.

ABOUT TURBO C++


Vista doesn't support full screen mode while operating Turbo C++,
and its also doesn't support graphics(bgi) while operating it.
There are lots of compatibility problems with Vista --
I have Vista Home Premium and have warning when I start VC++ 2005 Express!
I just tried running tc.exe and did not get the warning message you reported.
Although it would only run in the small window.
Your best bet is to download either VC++ 2005 Express or Dev-C++.
They both run full-screen.
