Specs: Windows 7
How can I install Turbocad V5 on Win 7 and get it to work. I have tried and get nothing. I had this cad program on Win 95 sometime ago.

You should have said you have W7 64 bit.

You might get it to work in dosbox or a virtual machine or maybe even reactos or in wine under some linux/mac os.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to find some patch or something that would make
W7 accept the disk and install the program. Maybe there is no such thing?
Any ideas?

Thanks again Michael A Fritz

what is the error message that comes up on the computer - most older programs require the setup/program to be run as an Administrator.

To run the program as Administrator right click on the program and select "Run as Administrator".

Another thing that might help the application run is setting it's compatibility mode to either windows NT4 or 95 (right click on the application, then select properties. Go to the compatibility tab then select the OS from the drop down box and press OK)

Hopefully this will help!

I finaly got it to install on the computer. It wont open. I have tried to run as administrator. Didn't work. I tried to run on older versions of windows from 95 forward. Didn't work. I am going to see if tec.support at IMSI has any information. Sure have appreciated your input. If you have anymore information please let me know.

Thanks Michael
