Error on Turbo C after upgrading to Windows 7

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I need an expert’s opinion on this. Ok, I had been programming in a Windows XP operating system with my Turbo C application. But when I upgraded my computers operating system into a windows 7 operating system. I get this error when I run the program

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem

This system does not support fullscreen mode. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

Could this be a compatibility issue?

Error on Turbo C after upgrading to Windows 7



Turbo C is an old Software and it is not portable. It is compatible only with Windows 95, 98, 2000 and XP, but I suggest you use an alternative application Software such as Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0. because you have nothing to do if your Operating System is higher than the application you are using or it is neither applicable nor compatible.
The MS Visual Studio has a C++ application that has the same function in Turbo C software; this is the alternative way to convert your programs into C++ application and you can modify the code into any visual forms. It can easily be used. Most programmers are capable of using Turbo C because it's hard to infiltrate the information behind it. But nowadays,  there are many ways of making programs – the easier the better.
It's highly recommended that you use the MS Visual Studio 6.0 for the alternative way of making programs. God bless!

Hi Michelle,

You could always try executing it in Compatibility mode.

Do the FF:

  1. Right click the application
  2. Select Properties
  3. Select the Compatibility Tab
  4. Under the Compatibility Tab>Run this program in compatibility mode for>Select your desired OS try XP or 98>Check the Run in  256 Colors
  5. Click Apply
  6. Try Running your application

I hope this helps 

Thank you 🙂
