    There is nothing like installation, yeah if you having zip archive, you just need to extract it, as you have done. And now run the TC.exe from the Extracted folder and you have done. The compiler is the file named TC.EXE. Don’t confuse it with the TC shortcut! Simply double click on that and the compiler will run.

    Use the Borland TurboC++ , its really good. You can install it using the exe file, There are newer GUI/IDEs also available for Turbo C++.

    Download this Turbo C 3.0 : This is a free C++ compiler from Borland. It comes with an IDE and debugger.

    Below are the instructions for downloading and installing v2.01 of the Borland Turbo C:

    1. Search and download the zipped Free Turbo C Compiler from google.
    2. Go to where you downloaded the file, and double click on the self-extracting file (turboC.exe) in Windows to extract it. This will bring up a WinZip Self-Extractor window (you do NOT need WinZip installed on your machine).
    By default, this will extract the files to C:\tctemp directory. You may designate a different location.
    Hit return to extract the files.
    3. Exit the WinZip Self-Extractor window (by hitting return twice).
    4. Once the files have been extracted, go to the directory c:\tctemp (or wherever you put the unzipped files), and double click on the file called install (it may be called install.exe).
    5. This will step you through the installation.
    * Hit enter to start the installation
    * Select the drive where the unzipped file are. The default is "A", so you should enter "C".
    Then hit return.
    * Hit return, again. This installs from the directory, \tctemp.
    * Hit return, again. This says to Install Turbo C on a Hard Drive.
    * Use the Up/Down arrow keys (hit the up arrow once) to select Start Installation, and then hit return, again.
    * At this point, the v2.01 Turbo C compiler is installed in C:\TC. That is where the tcc.exe executable is.
    6. That's everything, but you must add C:\TC to your executable search path. The easiest way to do this:
    * Bring up an MS-DOS window.
    * Position the cursor on the title bar of the MS-DOS window and right-click.
    * This pops up a menu. Click on Properties.
    * At the top of the window, click on the Program folder.
    * In the middle field, labeled Batch file:, enter the following:


    (This assumes that you unzipped the files into C:\tctemp.)
    * Click OK at the bottom of the window.
    * Close the MS-DOS window

    7. Now you're done! Try it out by creating a small C program and compiling it.

    * Bring up the MS-DOS window in the same way as you did above. (NOTE: You must close the first MS-DOS window.)
    * Type tcc and hit return. You should see a usage message. describing all the many compiler options.
    * Now create, compile, and run the Hello World! program.

    Assuming that you have already downloaded Turbo C++ on your pc, there is also an additional software called DOSBOX that you will have to install in your pc. Check which bit version the operating system is installed in your pc whether the 64 bit or 32 bit and then accordingly download the Turbo C++.
