Installing TURBO C

All My programs can be compiled using the turbo C complier.The following tutorial is for installation of Turbo C on your computer.

Step 1> Copy the code for the program to notepad and save the file with a ".c" extension (for c code) & ".c++" extension (for c++ code).

Step 2> Download the compiler from the above link and save the file.

Step 3> Open the file tc3.zip, find INSTALL.exe from its contents and double click to open it.

Step 4> A new window should open up now, press ENTER.

Step 5> Enter the drive letter you want to install turbo c on and press ENTER.

Step 6> Now on thw following screen type the source path or press ENTER to select the default path.

Step 7> After this just press F9 on the screen that follows to continue installation.

CONGRACTULATIONS you have set up turbo c on your computer successfully

Now copy the file you saved in Step 1 to the C:\TC\Bin folder and run it from turbo c!!

Note:- Inorder to run graphics programs you have to include the graphics library, for this
run turbo c then select Options->Linker->Libraries and check the graphics library.



This tutorial is for Installation of Turbo C on windows XP 32-bit, will post instructions for installation on XP 64-bit and Vista in some time......

In step 6, what do u mean by the source path. what should be mentioned over there?

Angad said...

Source path is the memory location on your hard disk where you want to setup Turbo C.It is recommended you choose the default path though !

I followed all steps as stated... but wen i attempted to open turbo c window am not able to do it and it displays "End program" window and it just terminates. can u pls help me to rectify?

Swarna said...

Hi ,

After extracting the files or without extracting , once you click on the Install.Exe file , it takes you to the installation process.

There you have 3 options ,
1) Change the path
2) Some Library files
3) Start Installation

Just come to last option Start Installation and Hit Enter.
It installs the Turbo, and then after to go to the program editor, you need to know the path where you have given to install.

Which means , telling system where to store the Turbo C files to use.

If you dont know the path , no worries,

As after the installation , system will create a Folder named TC.

Just type TC in search bar of the system, and wait.

When it lists in the search results , go to that Folder , open BIN folder.
There you will Shortcut to MS-DOS Program.

When you Double Click on it, it will take you to the Editor, where you can code and play around implementing new logics.

Hope this will be useful for those who are new to these things.

Hi! In step #1 that states:

Step 1> Copy the code for the program to notepad and save the file with a ".c" extension (for c code) & ".c++" extension (for c++ code).

What do you mean by "Copy the code for the program"? Where am I going to copy it?

Hey thanks Angad for make it so easy to install Turbo C++ compiler. But when I tried to run the program it says INVALID DIRECTORY for printf() function. Plz help me out.

komal said...

if your os is windows 7(64 bit)..then u cant use this specified software bcoz its for 32 bit os..
you may either use any other software that supports 64-bit os...or u may use DOSBOX to run the same tc on your 64-bit os.
