Turbo Pascal 7

I have Turbo Pascal 7.0.  And just installed Windows 98 on my computer.  How do I get TP7 to work in Win98 so I don't have to exit to DOS-Mode everytime i want to program something?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Instead of TURBO.EXE, simply use TPX.EXE.

What I did: In Start Menu|Settings|Folder options, and then the "File Types" page (I am guessing the names, since I have a Dutch version of Windows.. :-), assign the .PAS extension with \tp\bin\tpx.exe and use the \tp\bin\turbo.ico file.

Let me know if this doesn't work...

Batalf is right: On computers faster than 200Mhz the CRT unit gives a "divide by zero"-runtime error when you run your programs. You need a patch for this (his location could work).
