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.

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.

How to run turbo c++in vista 64 bit os


You can run Turbo C++ 3.0 on Windows XP 64 bit , Vista 32 bit and 64 bit OS (in full screen)

Install the software DOSBox ver 0.72 (Freeware) from the link below (Direct Link)

http://prdownloads.so urcef orge.net/dosbox/DOSBox0.72-win 32-in staller.exe?download

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

For example (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\ ***

C:\> cd TC [The contents inside the folder Turbo gets mounted as a virtual drive (Here D drive)
