    I have a 16-bit clip4win program we use and need to get it to work in Windows7. From lots of Google searches I am here now and am hoping this can be done with NTK. If so please let me know exactly as I am a newbie and don't have a clue how to.

    Hi Scott,

    Welcome onboard.

    Sure, you are at the right place.
    According to my own experience, NTK will make your C4W migration task simpler. Also, it will allow you to
    - modernize your program by accessing the most recent Win32 Apis,
    - ensure an efficient maintainance and regular improvements to your Apps.

    IMO, you should start by the few following steps:

    1. Install the whole NTK development plateform: NTK Framework + xHarbour1.2.1 + BCC5.5.1

    2. Make the correct settings according to instructions detailed in the 'Getting started' manual.

    3. Run a dos-shell, navigate to \wntk4Hrb\Ntkcore\ - then try to rebuild several of the available tutorials using the MK.BAT utility. e.g. MK Hello.prg or MK Demomult.prg

    4. Once you've successfully passed step3 (no errors), go to the \wntk4hrb\Contribs\C4W2NTK\ subdir.
    Here are located some very useful HowTo's, intended to help you figuring out how to translate a C4W program into NTK/Win32. Try to rebuild some of them using the MKRAD utility.

    Hope this helps.

    Do I need to buy the Pro version? Or the free will work?

    Why didn't you run NTKCfg? It did work like a charm for me, my NTK platform was ready to use in 30s!!!
