TURBO C, C++ FOR WINDOWS 8, 7 AND VISTA


Many of you have would tried to install and run turbo C++ in Windows 7 and Vista but may have failed to do so. You may have thought for a while what happened to your favorite C programming IDE(Integrated Development Environment), Which you used to run on Windows XP or 98 without trouble.

The true story behind this problem is that your version of windows has just got better enough or say advanced that it doesn't support the decades old "Dos" based software.

Windows after 9x(93,95,98 etc) versions are not running of top of dos, they run on a completely different Technology called NT(New Technology), so to provide compatibility with DOS software Microsoft provided these version of windows have a system called NTVDM (NT virtual dos machine), which emulates DOS like environment to run these dos programs b
ut when Windows evolved to Windows Vista and 7 Microsoft removed some capabilities of NTVDM, because of some compatibility issues with Aero graphics and stuff. So now any dos program has no direct access to hardware neither can any dos program Go Full-screen.

Since i also liked Turbo C++ IDE a lot and had used it a lot at school and college i was frustrated when it didn't run in windows 7 and Vista like it used to, in XP or 98, I started finding ways to run it in Windows 7 in full-screen mode. After a lot of experiment and testing i found that Dosbox could run it as like the old dos, but it had some problems like key-mapping that conflicted with shortcuts of Turbo C++, so i created a completely new installer for installing Turbo C++ on any version of windows may it be Windows Vista or 7(32&64bit) without any problems just click install and run the program from the desktop shortcut thats it!, Its very easy, atleast easier than installing the old dos based setup of Turbo C++. Just follow the screen shots below.........

  • Important info while running in Windows 8: If your keyboard layout is any other than English(US) Keyboard Short-Cuts will not Work. 
  • For those who are having Problems with processing of Floating point numbers or are getting garbage values then use beta-3 or beta-4 update patch.
  • During re-installation please un-install it properly back-up all the source code files from "C:\turboc++\disk\" folder and delete the folder  "C:\turboc++", reboot your computer and then you can proceed to re-installing it.
  • As reported by some users, if mouse hangs after running a program you can re-enable it by selecting repaint desktop option from main menu. For that first press F10 use arrow keys to goto main menu(left of FILE menu) and select Repaint Desktop.
  • For the convenience of the users some example programs have been given.
  • Un-installing won't delete the source files you created, you can find them in "C:\TurboC++\Disk" folder.
  • For Graphics programming please use "C:\\Turboc3\\BGI" instead of "C:\\Tc\\BGI" as BGI path.
  • People who have problem regarding inserting special symbols please use the key-mapper to suite your needs, it can  be opened by pressing "Ctrl+alt+F1" and change the mapping according to your needs, please don't toggle it if you don't know what you are doing.
  • Some people using this on laptops or AIO-pc (especially on HPQ laptops) face some problems like malfunction of symbols on keyboard, it is due to the multimedia enhancement driver or remote controller provided with the laptop. This issue can be resolved by un-installing those drivers. In  future release those problems will be solved.
  • Keep checking for a update in case of trouble, this has been tested on Windows 7 32 and 64 bit and works fine, and if any problem is found then please report at striker.dbz[at]hotmail.com, it will be resolved in future releases.
