BGI graphics not supported in Windows.

Hello. I am using Borland Turbo C++ 4.5. (Yes, it's rather old.) My books must be even older, because I entered this code with function calls like _setvideomode( ) and _getvideoconfig( ). Stuff like that.

But when I compile the program, I get the message "BGI graphics not supported in Windows." Well, what are BGI graphics? Why aren't they supported in Windows? How do I get around this? Should I get MS Visual C++ instead? Or should I be developing in DOS using Borland C / C++ 3.1?

Thank you one and all!
Rich

You can't use BGI in windows, because windows offers GDI, and I suspect the two conflict. Get some new books and buy VC++.
