What should I do? Please help me to solve it.



The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check

your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit)

version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.

Turbo C++ v3.0 is not working



As what the screenshot indicates you are having a compatibility problem. I suggest that you uninstall the C++ program and install the latest version or the version which is compatible with your current operating system. To uninstall the program:

1.       Click start button

2.       Go to control panel

3.       Under the Program button

4.       Click “uninstall a program”

5.       Find C++ software, right click and uninstall.

And download the latest and compatible version of C++ to avoid this problem.

I hope this suggestion will help you a lot.

Your computer is supported by 32 bit and not by 64 bits so you need to install the 32 bit window edition to run the program. You can also download Turbo C++ 32 bit and it will work fine on your PC.

If you receive this error when running Turbo C++ then it means you are using 64-bit Windows 7. Turbo C++ is a native 16-bit DOS-based program and 16-bit applications are not supported in 64-bit Microsoft Windows. One workaround you can try is run the program with DOSBox. DOSBox is a DOS emulator.

It allows you to run DOS-based programs in a DOS-emulated environment in operating systems that don’t support DOS programs as if the program is really running under DOS. Go to DOSBox Home Page to get the latest. The latest version at the moment is DOSBox 0.74-2. This is the maintenance release for version 0.74 which fixes several problems in Microsoft Windows 7.

Another way to run Turbo C++ on 64-bit Microsoft Windows is to download the Windows installer. Go to Download Turbo C++ for Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 (32-64 bit) and download the file. Follow the installation instructions to allow you to successfully run Turbo C++ in 64-bit Microsoft Windows with full screen support.
