Go and spank whoever suggested Turbo C++ to you. It's been dead for long.
You can get many C/C++ compilers for free these days, then why sweat for
a pirated copy of an archaic one?

1. Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 - free
2. Microsoft Visual C++ Express Edition 2005 - free, PSDK required for Win32 development.
3. GCC for Windows - MinGW - Home
4. Borland C++ 5.5 freecompiler
5. Pelles C
6. DigitalMars C/C++ compiler
7. LCC-Win32
8. OpenWatcom

There are many others. Learn to use Google.

MinGW is a Win32 build of the GCC compiler and related toolchain.
It includes: GCC for Windows, binutils, mingw-runtime, w32api, make etc.

Be nice to the boy. I am the first to suggest murdering people who still want to use TC, but the guy probably has a teacher to blame for that. If that is the case, ask the college lab assistants to help you out. And if that is not the case, then do as Yamaraj has suggested.

Uhuh. Newer C++ will not work on old C++. E.g. try getting exception handling working on TC++. You can't. It doesn't exist in TC++. But it is a primary feature of the third edition of C++.
