Hello,
I wanted to ask that I have heard that there is no MS-DOS based programs support on Windows 7. So C++ would not run on it, right. But I want to upgrade from my windows XP to Windows 7, but I also want C++ to run on it. Is there a way by which I can have my C++ run on windows 7? Or have win 7 having C++ run?
:huh: :huh:

If you are talking about Borland Turbo C++ 3.0, then it will have hard time running in Windows 7. Besides Turbo C++ 3.0 is way too old to be of any use. It was last updated in 1994 and standards have changed many times since then. You should instead use Microsoft VC++ Express or CodeBlocks (GNU C++).

I want to use C++ only. So if there is a way to run it on win 7 then tell me.

There is nothing like "running C++". You have to give more information about compiler. It should be like Borland C++, Turbo C++, Intel C++ etc.
In the last post I guessed it was Turbo C++ from Borland (most people come asking about it). There is no way that it would run in Windows 7 because Windows 7 has limited support for 16-bit applications. You can try running it inside an XP mode.

C++ is the compiler and the above programs include that as an option.

But isn't there any option of only using my Borland C++ only instead?
Actually I don't know about those programs, so can tell me how to go with Borland C++ itself on windows 7?

From my understanding C++ Compilers are the same across the entire board. You just need the libraries to compile things against.

Borland C++ Compiler 5.5 is free and runs okay on Windows 7.
