How to install Turbo C in Windows 7

I recently joined CS50 course from Harvard University (a separate post will come..). And “C” is a part of course. They have provided virtual box, but I wanted to go back in history, when I was trying all these on my DOS computer. So wanted to somehow install older Turbo C on Win 7.

Here is how to do:
Download TurboC.zip from http://borlandc.org/download-turbo-c-3-0-for-windows-7-windows-8-and-windows-xp/
Extract this zip file into root of any of your drive with name “TURBOC”. (I choose my secondary partition d:\turboc)

Then install DOSBox from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dosbox/files/latest/download?accel_key=56%3A1389240390%3Ahttp%253A//www.dosbox.com/download.php%253Fmain%253D1%3A2b9a56c7%248842c58503fa569aac3f40d904cc8ddf6bb21966&click_id=6b37f490-78e3-11e3-ae1f-0200ac1d1d9b&source=accel

Install DOSBox.

Start DOSBox.

Type
mount c d:\

This will create “C:” in your virtual DOS box with your D:\ as source.

Type
cd turboc
install

Follow on screen guide to install Turbo C (default in C:\TC directory).

Goto C:\TC directory and you can run TurboC from C:\TC\BIN directory.

Enjoy!!!🙂

EDIT: Psst!! You can use http://codelite.org/🙂
