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

Is any turbo c and c++ compatible with windows vista OS.


Highly doubtful since both the Turbo C and Turbo C++ were created for DOS, Windows 3.0 and Windows 3.1. You might be able to use Vista's compatibility mode to run the program with disabled Vista features but I doubt it for a program that old. I think Vista's compatibility mode only goes down to Windows 98 SE.

Hope this helps...

There is a software that provide you the same dos format as you are getting in XP,

Want to install xp instead of vista - but end up in caldera dr dos


Alot of the reason is because they don't want you to down grade from Vista to XP. But see if this helps. Start your pc, insert XP disk, as soon as the screen comes up press f12 which will allow you to choose the booting sequence, click CD- ROM and the disk should start to be read. understand this tho by downgrading you will have a hard time finding the appropiate drivers for most of your devises since they were meant to be runned by Vista. Here's a tip go find the drivers in europe (be it toshiba.europe, Dell.europe) for they are still running XP. to find the drivers for your particu;ar pc just find the series number and the last unit to run with xp and viola a working xp on a vista pc. Hope this helped

Good Luck =)

Window vista


the architecture of vista has many variations from older versions of windows.... go to the software properties and in the compatibility tab set it to the version of the windows in which the software used to work... it may help.. if it doesnt work even that way then u have to go for the latest version of the software... no other way....
