Running C/C++ [old DOS programs] in Windows Vista / 7 in Fullscreen Mode

5 Jul

I’m now using Windows 7 the new Windows OS which is working fine with my PC. It was a long time i had installed Turbo C++ in my system. That was our exam times, i tried installing Turbo C++ in my system. It worked fine but only one problem is that full screen mode is disabled. My monitor is of 1440×900 resolution so that the Turbo C++ screen fit in 1/4th of the total window more than that the graphics programs are not working… because in cant initialize the graphics object. After a lot of searching i found a software it was DOSBOX. DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC with sound, graphics, mouse and more. DOSBox emulates a 286/386 CPU, supports realmode amd protected mode, has a full virtual file system, support for XMS and EMS, graphics support including Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/VESA and sound support including SoundBlaster and Gravis Ultra Sound cards. It has excellent compatibility with many classic games.
