1. Run tc in dos command prompt
2. Then press Alt + Enter

To return back again use Alt + Enter


Thanks & Regards

you can't run tc in fullscreen mode in windows vista, this is a drawback of vista, but you can resize the window size of tc by changing the properties of tc window

so i assume you have turbo c compiler in your vista machine.when you double click on tc.exe,you get the message as shown below.
“this system does not support fullscreen mode.choose close to terminate the application”. now if you click ignore you will see a very small screen ,which wont help much in writing programs.
how to run turbo c then?
step 1: go and download dosbox software here. install the downloaded software.
step 2:copy all your turboc files in one folder in c drive.i mean copy all the files in the bgi,include folders,and all other folders into a new folder.you should have all those files under a single folder.
step 4: run dosbox
step 5: at the prompt in dosbox window ,type “intro mount”
step 6: type mount c c:\tc ( if “tc” is the nameof folder you copied all files of turbo c)
step 7: type “c:”
step 8: type “dir’ in front of c:\ and type “tc”
that should be all.select ok at the prompts that pop-up .and the next time you start turboc from dosbox ,press alt+enter.
happy programming.!
  • you cant use keyboard shortcuts like ctrl+f9 and others ,you will have to use mouse for that.
  • dont forget to clear the text under options>>directories in turboc before you compile the program.
then you done..

dosbox is the best way to do it
A) It runs fullscreen
B) It runs TC Graphics, which Vista doesnt support

But if you are not doing this for college, i would recommend you do it using Code Blocks. Its a very good ansi c standard compiler...

This works for me perfectly you should copy all files just check it.....

but i personaly advise you to use devcpp it's a good compiler for c and c++....and has good features.. just google it it's..free

To run tc in full screen in vista:
Lets assume your tc folder is in d drive.

1)Install Dosbox.
2)Run dosbox.
**3)Type the following at the prompt.
a)intro mount
b)mount d d:\tc
c)d:
d)tc
4)Press alt+Enter.
5)Go to option->directories
6)Change the first two rows to "include" and "lib" respectively.
7)delete the third and forth row.


Imp:
a)To run your program you cant use ctrl+f9 as ctrl+f9 is the shortcut (of dosbox) to exit dosbox.
b)You can use the other shortcuts.
c)you have to perform steps 5 to 7 everytime you open tc from dosbox.

**
To automatically open tc on startup of dosbox
1)go to your dosbox folder.
2)open the file dosbox.conf
3)look for autoexec(it is at the end of the file)
4)under that type the following
intro mount
mount d d:\tc
d:
tc

5)next time whenever you will run dosbox tc will automatically open.

If anyone's finding Dosbox method difficult, then try this,
  1. Install Oracle VirtualBox
  2. Then install windows xp OR 2000 in the virtual m/c
  3. Install TC in that windows
and you are done. It's easy, I guess.
