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
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.
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.
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.
for this tip.
