Hi,

I want to install turbo c in windows. I don't have cd to install turbo c.

I tried downloading a zip package and installing but it is giving error.

How can i install and download turbo c in windows?

Any suggestions?

I believe you can run Turbo C in Windows 7, but it has to run inside a virtual machine.

This is how it ran in WindowsXP as well, using the NT VDM. I haven't done this yet, but surely will some time soon. Google it, and also check out DOS BOX, Virtual Box, and VM for their solutions.

I download Turbo c (zip file) from internet. But i can't install from install.exe
file. It is asking for disk 1. But my files are inthe c: drive. Please give any idea for install. My os is windows 7 ultimate. (so for it is a unregistered version) If the problem is due to this i have to purchase. Please give the solution.
Thank You

Copy the files onto floppy disks and install from there. But you first need to install DosBox and install Turbo C from within that environment.

I agree with all above.Try a better/newer IDE .Avoid using Turbo C, it is considered to be non-standard. There are many things in it which are outdated and not according to ANSI standard.

While I have to agree with the others that you would be better off using a newer IDE rather than Turbo C++, I understand that you might not have a choice in the matter. Is this for a particular class that requires Turbo C++, or are you using it for personal study? If the former, all we can say is 'good luck'; if the latter, you would be well advised to use a different free compiler/IDE such as Code::Blocks or Visual C++ Express instead.

If you must use Turbo C++ - and again, it is not an ideal solution - then the choices are to either run DosBox, as Ancient Dragon proposes, or set up a virtual machine installation of some older version of Windows (no later than XP) using something such as Microsoft Virtual PC or Oracle VirtualBox.

you can use gcc compiler.. turbo c is outdated,,, leave that thing behind ....

First download and Install TC self-extractor from internet,
it will extract all the files to c:\tc

Now if u are running win 7 , then

1'st way :

goto device manager -> Display adapter , now disable display adapter,so it will be 16 bit..now u can run tc in fullscreen mode without any error..

2'nd way :

Download and install Dosbox...
now mount the drive where ur c files are placed..
make tc.exe as startup and run tc.

I have installed c++ and dosbox which enabled fullscreen. But now the problem is it wont load the library files.
