Abstract: This document covers creating a shortcut to TC.EXE in Windows 95.


The installation routine did not set up any short cuts on my Programs menu. How do I Start Turbo C++ 3.0 for Dos?


The following instructions can be used to create a shortcut to start Turbo C++ 3.0 for DOS. They are specific to Windows 95, but can be easily generalized to apply to Windows 98, NT 4, and 2000.

  • Start | Settings | Taskbar
  • Choose the Start Menu Programs tab, click on the Add button
  • Type: c:\tc\bin\tc.exe [Enter]
  • Continue using the defaults. Next --> Next --> Finish --> OK
  • Start TC3 by going to: Start | Programs | Turbo C++ IDE
