Windows 7: How to run Turbo C editor on Windows 7 without using DOSBox?

How to run Turbo C editor on Windows 7 without using DOSBox?

Is there any other way to run the Turbo C editor on Windows 7 without using DOSBOx?

Something(some tweak or emulator) that runs it only by a double click as in Windows XP and earlier Win versions. With DOS Box, I have to mount the drive every time and retrieving graphics output is tedious.

Upgrade to something newer then Turbo C? That might make life easier.

TurboC is a 16 bit app. It's not going to run native on 64 bit OS. There are other VMs than DosBox. You can try XPmode

edit: I found this on Softpedia:


I have no idea if it really works. You may want to back things up before trying. Although on Softpedia they at least give things a quick run before adding an entry for a program or utility.
