This tutorial will guide you how to run Turbo C++ in Windows 7 or Windows Vista (and other 64-bit Windows OS) in full screen mode.

Note: We have transferred to new domain to cover all tech stuff. Visit: . This tutorial is available here

Command being 16-bit application doesn’t allow itself to run in full-screen mode in these Operating System. Whenever tried, one will be greeted with the image shown.

Same goes with Turbo C++ (tc.exe). It is also command originated and thus, will not let you work on full screen mode. There are some unexpected crashes which one may have to endure.

In order to aid, we will use a 32-bit emulator application called as DosBox.

  1. If you haven’t grabbed Turbo C++ setup, download it from here.
  2. Create a new folder in your C:  and rename it to ‘turbo’ [or anyone you feel like]. Reason for doing it will be mentioned as you read.
  3. Now, run the installed setup file [TC3setup.exe] and give the extraction position as
  4. Now, download the DosBox setup from here
  5. Install DosBox in your system.
  6. Now run DosBox. A command prompt type window will appear. Now note that there is a difference between the command prompt our system is equipped with and this version of command prompt. This emulator is 32-bit in contrary to native 16-bit prompt, therefore, allowing you to run it in full screen mode.
  7. In this window, we now need to mount the folder via this command:    This tells about the reason behind creating another directory while extracting TC3setup.exe. Mounting works relative to a folder, here Turbo.
  8. Work is almost done. Now, type “C:” to mount above mounted drive.
    To list the content of this mounted space, type ‘dir’
  9. Type

    >cd tc
    >cd bin

    to reach within subdirectories for tc.exe
    Now type tc and press Enter.
    Press Alt + Enter to go in Full Screen Mode.

This task may look all so tedious. But, everything can be automated in a single go.
Once you have successfully managed to run it in full screen mode, you can easily automate the process by editing configuration file. You can drop comments below in case of any problem to get through.

To run TC automatically on running DosBox:

Search for “DosBox” in start menu.
Now click on DosBox 0.74 Options

A configuration file in Notepad will be opened.

Go till the end of the document and add following lines there:

mount c c:\turbo


cd tc/bin


Save this file and exit from notepad.

Run DosBox again. Voilla! It will take you straight to TuboC++.

Many a times you must have got need to operate your system remotely or probably felt a necessity of working ‘calloborately’ haven’t you? But all these thoughts go in vain while thinking about the solution to do so.. I mean operating the system at long distance is not an easy task afterall. Personally, commanding anyone to operate creates lot of hurdles.
Well there is a solution, an easy and effective one. TeamViewer, a small and interactive application to operate another system quite easily, just like virtual machine in your system itself. You will get this more clear if you will see this:

Even though this might be pure speculation, anything that is related to Windows Mobile 7, the

In a string of Windows Mobile 7 related news, here is a blog post by ZDNet blogger Mary Jo Foley, who seems to have stumbled upon the “system requirements” for running the upcoming OS from Microsoft. The list, as expected, is far from official, as Microsoft has never spoken in public about Windows Mobile 7.

The hardware requirements include mandatory support for multi-touch with the software support for zooming in for images and controlling games. There is also this interesting requirement for the device to sport at least a 3.2 megapixel camera. Next comes GPS support, which is mandatory as well. Apart from these, a compass and accelerometer are also required. On the connectivity front, the device should be USB High, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi: 802.11B/G compliant. Connector support comes in the form of Micro USB and a 3.5mm audio jack.
This information reportedly comes from a trusted source and only time will tell how much of this actually turns out to be true.
