TITLE : Configuring Turbo C++ for Use from a Network

Although Turbo C++ is not qualified for use ON a network, it is
possible to run Turbo C++ FROM a network. That is to say, it not
possible to run Turbo C entirely on a network; there MUST be a
drive at the user's station and any disk I/O must be forced to
occur to the local drive.

Since Turbo C++ always seems to write to the BIN of its
installation, one might wonder how this can be accomplished. The
following steps outline the procedure.

1) Implement the procedure titled "Save State of Last Exit
on a By-Directory Basis" which appears earlier in this
section. This will force the IDE to write desktop,
configuration and project information to the logged
(read local) directory rather than the network directory.

2) When you execute the IDE, use the command:

TC /rX

where 'X' is the drive letter of a local drive. This
will force TC++ to use the specified local drive for its
swap file rather than the network drive. Note that the
above command should be supplemented with the options you
normally use.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
