How to install Turbo C and C++ on Windows OS


I would like to install Turbo C++ on Windows7 64 bit OS. I keep getting the error message: "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you are running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86(32-bit) or x64(64-bit) version of the program and then contact the software publisher" 


System Requirement 

  • In windows 10, 8.1 and 8 no pre requirement.
  • In windows XP, Vista and 7 .NET 4.5 Framework require to run "Turbo C++".


  • Download here
  • Create a folder named "TurboC++" in you hard drive (in our example drive D:).
  • Extract your TURBOC.EXE file by using Winrar. Right-click on the "TURBOC" file and you can find the option "Extract to TURBOC\".
  • After extraction, you will notice a folder named "TURBOC" will be created.
  • Inside that "TURBOC" folder, there will be an another folder named "TC" which contains all the C++ files in it.
  • Copy the "TC" folder "TurboC++".
  • Double-click on the shortcut icon "DOSBox" that can be found on your desktop. A command prompt will be opened with the prompt X:\>
  • Now enter the below command and press "Enter"

mount d d:\turboc++\

  • "Drive D is mounted as local directory and d:\turboc++\" should appear.
  • Now change the prompt by entering the below command.

d: > Press Enter.

  • Now your prompt changes to D:\>
  • Now enter the below commands

cd tc\bin
--> Press Enter.

  • Now the prompt will be D:\TC\Bin>tc > Press Enter.
  • TurboC++ Editor will open. Click on OK.
  • Go to "Options" > Directories > Change the path to D.

It includes:

  • Directories path should be D:\TC\Include
  • Library Directories path should be D:\TC\LIB

Click on OK.

  • Now again go to "Options" > Directories > Save.
  • Hold the "Alt" key and Press Enter to "Maximize" it. To minimize it, again hold the "Alt" key and Press Enter.

Note : Don't use the shortcut key Ctrl+F9 to run the program. You need to launch it manually.
