How to install Turbo C++ in dosbox of window xp?

1.Firstly install turbo c++ from site:–freeware-flggsdpz.html

2.You will get a zipped folder. Right click on the folder and choose extract. Name the folder as TC and put all the extracted files in it. Place the folder in C: drive.

3.Open this folder. Find TC.exe file in it and install it on your pc.

Problem that we get is even on installing turbo C++ on your pc, it does not work. When we go to TC\BIN\TC. Black screen come and then go away just like flash.So if you want to run Turbo C++ its better to install it in Dos Box.

4.Now, After installing Turbo C++, Download dosbox  from site:

5.After this , install the dosbox and open it.

6.Now make another folder named Tutorial in C: Drive and copy all the contents of TC folder in it.

7.In the dosbox, Give the following commands.

Z:\>mount c c:\tutorial
C:\>cd TC\BIN\

Your Turbo C++ is now installed on Dosbox……


Whenever you open Dosbox ,you have to give commands that i have written in step 7 again abd again. To get rid of this,

Follow the following steps:

1.Right click on Dosbox shortcut, choose properties.

2.Then click on Find target button.

3.Open file, named as Dosbox 0.74 conf  i.e configuration file. Find the statement AUTOEXEC in it.

Type all the commands of step 7 in it.

Save the file and exit.

Now whenever you open Dosbox, it will always run Turbo C++ in it.

Thats all……………………

  2. Jamie says:

    Yes. There is a BIN folder in TC folder and a TC icon. I typed the command as you said
    “z:\>mount c c:\tutorial” after entering the DOSbox says “Drive C is mounted as local directory c:\tutorial\”. Next, “Z:\>c:” Then “C:\>cd TC\BIN\” Now the DOSbox says “unable to change to: TC\BIN\.”
    I followed all the steps that you said.
