Turbocad V16 Deluxe onto Windows 10 COmputer

Apologies if this is not the right forum. I have searched the forums.

I have loaded Turbocad V16 De Luxe onto my Windows 10 computer. It runs fine on  my old computer under Windows 7 . The desktop is clunky and the drawing very pixilated is there anything I can look to do to improve things in the short time. I don't want to upgrade at this moment.

I feel it may be a driver issue

Thanks for looking.

I assume you mean v16 and not 2016.   I have v16 deluxe running on windows 10, though with the odd problem,  I set it to run with compatibility as XP sp3.   Right click the TC icon, or find the tcw16.exe in program files x86 - imsidesign - tcw16 - Program folder, and change the compatibility.  To be honest, I cannot remember why I set it this way to begin with,  there must have been some sort of problem but I cannot remember what.

No guarantees but worth a try.

Thanks Andy.
Yes V16 De Luxe. I' very new to Win 10, is there an option to run in XP mode within Win 10? I thought it had been done away with after Win 7. Would be useful if the option is there. I have an even older program that I need to run.
.
I will have a look.

I think it depends on the program.

if its a 64 bit program then xp mode won't be available, but a 32 bit program like v16 should show xp mode.  that said you could always try windows 7 mode compatibility.  (after right clicking the icon, choose properties, then compatibility).
