BP 7.0 CRT bug

Posted on 1998-04-14

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Running DOS programs on fast PC's cause a runtime error 200, Division by Zero error, when the CRT unit is used and the program is compiled using BP 7.0. The problem is independent of using actual CRT functionality. According Borland this is a known problem, but they don't support the product any longer.

There should however be a non-Borland patch out somewhere fixing the problem.
Can anyone please guide me to the patch?

I heard of that problem. Do you run a PII ? These CPUs are different constructed, so you'll have problems. There are Freeware CRT Units avaiable in SWAG or if you searche for CRT.TPU at www.filez.com. Just overwrite your original CRT in \UNITS of your TP/BP - Directory and re-compile your program. You should watch that the new CRT works with exactly same procedure, so that you dont need to do any changes in your sources, but usually they are same.

Yes, I run PII.
I have search for both SWAG and CRT.TPU at www.filez.com.
Can you be more precise?

what you need is an exactly "copy" of the CRT.TPU - Unit. Borland didnt release that as i know, but u may get a such unit from other programmers for free. I think swag should have that. or there is a big lib at http://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/
