Borland Turbo Profiler and Debugger Fail with Windows NT

Article ID: Q102181

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows NT operating system, version 3.1 - Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


If you try to run Borland Turbo Profiler for Windows or Borland Turbo Debugger for Windows in Windows NT, you receive the following error message:

An application has attempted to access the keyboard or mouse hardware as a 16-bit Windows program, which cannot be supported. This may cause the application to function incorrectly.


Both Turbo Profiler for Windows and Turbo Debugger for Windows attempt to access the hardware directly (bypassing the Windows device drivers) to get mouse and keyboard input. Microsoft Windows NT does not allow applications to access the hardware directly.
