I would like to install turbo c++ on windows7 64 bit OS. But I could not install it and one error is come it is that "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"
I don't understand it. Please tell me how to install it.

Thank you

Try this 1

1) Click on the below hyperlink "Download", download the file and install it.


2) Create a folder named "Turboc++" in your D-Drive.

3) Extract your TURBOC.EXE file by using Winrar. Right-click on the "TURBOC"

file and you can find the option "Extract to TURBOC\".

After extracting, you will notice a folder named "TURBOC" will be created.

Inside that folder "TURBOC" there will be an another folder named "TC"

which contains all the C++ files in it. Copy that folder "TC" into the created

folder "Turboc++".

So in your D-drive Turboc++ folder will contain the folder "TC"

4) Double-click on the shortcut icon "DOSBox" that can be found on your

desktop. A command prompt will be opened with the prompt Z:\>

Now enter the below command and press "Enter"

mount d d:\turboc++\

"Drive D is mounted as local directory 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 be opened. Click on OK.

5) Go to "Options" --> Directories --> Change the path to D. That is

Include 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.

6) 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 do

it manually by going to "Run" --> Run.]

Good Luck

Read the above instructions once again.
If you have a TURBOC.EXE file then you need to extract it. Follow the above instructions.
If you have a TURBOC folder that contains already the extracted files then inside that "TURBOC" folder you can find another folder named "TC" which contains the folders like BGI, LIB, INCLUDE etc. So copy that folder "TC" into our created folder named "Turboc++".
Hello ,
As jack4all told us to extract the files to the specified folder , here we dont find any TC folder.....................because the download link which you have given is only the software...........we cannot extract it !!!! and after installing that software to the folder we didn't find any TC folder in that !!!!!!

Hello sean,
The above given application is used for running Turboc++. It's not Turboc++ application.
First you need to have Turbo C++ application with you and then download the above software to run the Turboc++.
Good Luck
hello , jack4all
as you said that there will be a folder ''TC'' inside turboc.
but I could not find any folder with such name.
hi, jack4all...

pls. tell me what should I do..................
the folders you mentioned (LIB,BGI, INCLUDE) to be present in tc, they are not inside tc but are unique folders......plz.
