How can i make Turbo Pascal v 7.0 tu run under the winxp os. I know

The problem is that each time i click on the program , the screen flickers but it does not launch the program. When in the properties i tried to make "run this program in compatibility mode for win 95" i got the following message:

16 bit Ms-Dos Subsystem.

Invalid statrup directory, please check your pif file. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thx!

    You can try to change the properties of the turbo.exe program. In the "Starting in" (or something similar: dutch windows) it should read the path where the turbo.ee is located. If it doesn't change it to correct that.

    Thank you all for your help. Your tips have helped in laucnh Pascal better now. All i have is one last problem, as soon as i launch pascal when the blue screen appears i am getting an error message saying "invalid file name or extension" then i click twice on ok and i can work normal. in fact on top the file name is AND.PAS and i guess that this is the reason for the error message because i think that this file does not exist.

    Is there any setting i can change to either not open any files on launching the pascal or i get a new document ... hopefully i will get over this slight problem too.

    Thanks again and i very much grateful for your support.
