TurboC++ for Windows

Run TurboC++ on modern Windows operating systems

TurboC++ for Windows is a modified version of the Borland Turbo C++ that can be run on newer versions of Windows, such as Vista, 7 and 8. The application sports all the features of the old IDE, eliminating all the incompatibility issues that are encountered in a normal Turbo C++ installation on modern Windows editions.

Borland achieved an immense success with the release of Turbo and Borland C++, which were, at the time, the most reliable IDE platforms for amateur and professional programmers. Over the time, Turbo C++ underwent a series of modifications, development was ceased and resumed, which finally, led to a complete metamorphosis of the product to C++ Builder, now owned by Embarcadero.

Regardless of these transformations, programmers all over the world remained faithful to the old Turbo C++. Unfortunately, the program’s compatibility with the latest Windows versions is debatable, but still achievable. There are a few workarounds that involve the use of Dosbox to emulate the old DOS environment, one of which is TurboC++ for Windows.

This is one of the most reliable alternatives to manually attempting to solve Turbo C++ incompatibility issues with Windows Vista, 7 and 8. The solution relies on the aforementioned Dosbox and includes a couple of code adjustments to manage the successful launch and proper functioning of the program.

TurboC++ for Windows bundles all the features of the old IDE; it includes a compiler, a debugger, the DOS shell, breakpoints, code inspection, watches, tracing, to name the most important ones. The program also incorporates a few project samples and runs in full screen mode only.

The advantages that TurboC++ for Windows brings to the table are numerous. Aside from solving Windows compatibility issues, it relies on a simple installation procedure, decent code processing speed and requires few user efforts.

In conclusion, Turbo C++ fans should definitely take it for a spin. There aren’t many similar solutions anyway, so the software market falls short of competitors.
