Using Turbo C++ 3.0 on Windows NT 4.0

I am currently using Windows NT 4.0. I have 32megs of memory and
a 200Mh chip. I installed Borland's Turbo C++ Version 3.0 without
any problems. When I enter the IDE I am able to create, edit and
save my program.

When I exit out of C++ I get the following error message:

Command Prompt - tc

X#-0B, CS=00C7 IP=00001E55. The NTVDM cpu had encountered an
unhandled exeception.

At this point my options are
        Terminate    or    Ignore

If I click on Ignore I remain with the same error messsage. So
I must terminate.

I don't have a clue why this is happening.
Any ideas?

Thanks!

Well ... this question would better be posted in the WindowsNT-
Setup group ... I think that there are more NT-freaks hanging
around and chance of a good answer were bigger..... but anyways
I'll try my best!

The exception in NTVDM-cpu indicates an error in the NT-virtual
dos machine. NT has for every dos-program a virtual-dos-machine,
which consists of an "own cpu" and a complete dos-memory en-
vironment. This "own cpu" for each dos-program is realized by
switching the cpu in a special mode where it simulates multiple
8086 cpu's. Htough this virtual dos machine simulates dos usually
pretty good it is still not a real dos, that is also why dos-
programs with direct hardware-access (e.g. games with graphics)
do not work.
In your case I would guess that Turbo C++ 3.0 has some minor
incompatibility, though it is very interesting that you can
work with it like saving and compiling, but that it crashes on
exit.
Hmmm .... maybe it has problems writing the configuration file
to the disk?? Ever tried to disable saving the ide-settings on
exit?
Anyhow, the ide seems to do something on exit, that the VDM of
NT does not like ...... and I am afraid that the possibility to
change that are pretty low. :(

Sorry that is not the clue to solve the problem ... but maybe you
have some new ideas on what could be wrong.
