Turbo C for Windows 7 and 8

If you are looking for Turbo C or Turbo C++ which can run on Windows Vista, 7 and 8 without any problems then you can have come to right place.

In many colleges of our country and some other countries around the world Turbo C 3.0(1993) is still used as a standard IDE(integrated development Environment) for teaching C/C++ programming languages. 

I was also taught C programming in our college labs using this same software. So most students obviously get very accustomed with this software. Now the problem is that when students want to practice C in their home and they try to install Turbo C/C++ 3.0 in their computers, most of the time they don't succeed.

The reason is that modern Operating systems like Windows 7 and Windows 8 don't support Dos based 16bit applications well and Turbo C 3.0 is a 16bit dos application.

Now some of you might think "how could Windows Xp run this app properly then?". Well if you want to learn more about the problem and its history click here, but if you are just interested in a solution to the problem keep reading.

Some years back (someday in 2011) i developed a modified version of Dosbox, Optimized to launch and run Turbo C or Turbo C++ 3.0 properly and in full-screen mode and support all keyboard short-cuts also.

Overtime i have optimized it a lot and it has been used by many people over the world.

You can also run graphics programs in it, just make sure that you change BGI path to C:\\TURBOC3\\BGI from C:\\TC\\BGI for graphics programs.
