Hey,
i'm searching Turbo Pascal for my Vista 64 bit, because my TP 7.0 don't
running in my Vista. Please,Get hyperlink for TB for 64 bit procesor.
Help
Thanks for answers Smile

Turbo Pascal 7.0 is the last version of TP. I never heard of patches for
Vista. But you can try Free Pascal, which is compatible to TP.

Download it under http://www.freepascal.org/.

There are no versions of TP for 64 bit systems. TP 7 is a 16-bit
application, and since 64-bit versions of Windows do not have support
for 16-bit applications it won't run natively. You could try running it
in DOSBox, I think there is a version of DOSBox for Vista 64.

Hope this helps!

IIRC, 16-bit stuff does not work in 64-bit systems.

Here's a thought - can one put, say, DOS 6 on a USB stick appropriately
formatted, and boot it from the stick?

Maybe it would work, probably need it in floppy emulation mode. (which means
more that it has no partition table, like bootable CDs for which emulation
mode was mainly used).

It would need some engineering though (FAT16, no partition table,
bootsector).

Quote:
If so, TP/BP should run properly
on the stick. But how would one transfer files across?

Plug the stick in any OS that still supports SFN (iow true fat16, not vfat),
without mutilating it.

Technically all possible, and while not very practical it could be used as an
for easy "real metal" tests, even if you normally work in some VM solution.

Of course, it doesn't only affect development, but also the actually running
the products, which in time will be a bigger problem. OTOH dosbox might be a
viable solution for non-hardware linked programs.

The newsgroup mFAQ might mention compilers that accept the TP/BP
language but run on more recent OSs.

FYI, BP7 is usable in XP sp3.

32-bit or 64-bit ? (Smile

Sure, I do it all the time. I use HP's USB Drive Format Utility which
allows you to create a DOS boot disk using whatever DOS system files you
have handy (for example, on a bootable floppy). I've used MS DOS
6.22/7.0/7.1 and a version of PC DOS that escapes me at the moment. I
generally use FAT16, but FAT32 works as long as the DOS version
understands it.

Probably, but I've not tried.

Quote:

Just boot into Windows and copy files to/from the USB stick, or use a
DOS that understands NTFS (is there a DOS that can?).

Why not use a pc emulator ?

(tp7 and most 16 bits programs work on vista 32 too,
although not in graphics mode)

I don't think about this Wink,
I have FreePascal for Vista 64 bit now.

32-bit or 64-bit ?  (Smile


In addition to the previous methods to get a TP-program running on
Vista, I suggest you compile the TP-code with ie. Delphi 7.0. It is
mandatory it is a pure text mode program with no graphic using BGI.
Compile to console mode, and I assume your program will be running (I
have not Vista 64).

If a few changes are needed, as has sometimes been the case for my
programs, compile-time conditionals can be used so that one has a single
source file which will compile on either TP/BP or Delphi.

What works, what not? Did you get TV compiled for Delphi?

What I never have tested or known in detail is how much of the TP OOP model
works in the most used Delphi versions (D6,7 and maybe D2006+)

You can target many more platforms
natively with no/little change to code?
