PROCEDURE TO USE TURBO C IDE ON 64 BIT OS

I recently purchased DELL INSPIRON N5010 laptop. It has 64 bit OS(window 7 home basic). I don't want to jump into the long debated topic on  INTERNET that is "64 bit vs 32 bit OS " , stil here is the link which can bring smile on d faces of d debaters of both sides=>64 BIT OS VS 32 BIT OS

Now back to d topic , I found that turbo c ide wasn't working on my laptop.It was really infurating to see this message,

I searched a lot on internet and discussed the same with my friends(shubham and prabhakar) and finally got 2 solutions for this agonizing problem.

solution 1


use VM ware:

VMware Workstation is a desktop software that allows you to run multiple
x86‐compatible desktop and server operating systems simultaneously on a single PC,
in fully networked, portable virtual machines—with no rebooting or hard drive
partitioning required.



so we can run 32 bit os with the help of vm ware on 64 bit os n the problm is solved bt there is one significant con of this solution....extra load on processor....so this solution is alright for desktops bt for laptops some other viable solution should be used , so here comes more viable soln....

solution 2

use DOSBOX: 

DosBox is a free DOS open source emulator, used to make run games n applications that don't work in modern operating system, or non Microsoft operating system (like Linux)

STEP 1 : DOWNLOAD DOSBOX..DOWNLOAD FROM HERE...

STEP2  :  INSTALL IT  AND RUN THE APPLICATION


(THIS FORM APPEARS)












STEP 3 : USE MOUNT command....z:\>mount c c:\ (THIS STEP IS USED EVERY TIME U OPEN THE DOSBOX APPLICATION)

STEP 4 : MOVE TO THE DIRECTORY HAVING TURBO C INSTALLER(DIS Z FOR INSTALLING IT) , SUPPOSE THE INSTALLER Z IN DIRECTORY C THEN MOVE TO DIRECTORY C FROM DIRECTORY Z.....z:\>c:...  and instal the turbo ide

















STEP 5 : TURBO IDE IS READY TO BE USED NOW(DOSBOX is needed everytime).


















AFTER PRESSING ENTER IN THE LAST LINE...TURBO C WINDOW WILL APPEAR...

NOTE: IF THERE IS AN ERROR REGARDING HEADER FILES....THEN U HAVE TO GIVE THE PATH OF FOLDERS INCLUDE AND LIB
