Turbo C ++ v1.0 for Microsoft DOS !!!!! The two volumes printed on paper are in good condition. I remember they came packaged with 4 floppy disks in a cardboard box.
Here a matrix printer output of a piece of code, dated 1993!!
Hands on to run TC++ on a Mac
First, I found an image of MSDOS here
Second, I found an image copy of TC++ here
Third, I created a VirtualBox configuration for a DOS operating system with 2 floppy disks and a hard drive:
First time I started the system show me the classic A prompt so I issued a dir command to see the disk content:
Then I issued a format command to make format to disk C:
After that I changed to disk B:
Let’s try to run INSTALL.EXE…
It takes 2 seconds, 25 years ago it took minutes for sure!! Now the installer is asking me to change to disk 2…
Thanks to VirtualBox that was pretty easy:
So finally I got the software installed!
Expectant to see if it works! Lets move to c:\TC\BINmand run TC.EXE..
Incredible!!!! Enjoy 😉
