Turbo C++ for Android – How to Download and Install

Here you will get step by step guide to download and install Turbo C++ for Android platform.

If you are from India and have started learning C/C++ programming from your school days then you have definitely used Turbo C++ compiler. Still many schools, colleges and institutions in India prefer Turbo C++ for teaching students (don’t know about other countries). I do not recommend you to use Turbo C++ compiler for android because it is very outdated (about 23 years old). There is another option i.e. C4droid, it is an awesome C/C++ IDE that supports gcc compiler.

So, lets come to main topic on which I am writing this article. In windows we use DosBox Emulator for running Turbo C++ for Android, in the same way we need an emulator for android platform which is known as AnDosBox. So without wasting much time lets take a look how we can use Turbo C++ for android platform.

Turbo C++ for Android – Steps to Download and Install

1. First of all download Turbo C++ for Android from link given below:
2. It is compressed so you need to extract it. This can be done by any compression tool like Easy Unrar. You can download it from play store for free.
3. Now after extracting you will get a folder TC and an apk file AnDosBox.
4. Install AnDosBox and move TC folder in your sd card, remember that TC folder must be in sd card not in any other subfolder.
5. Now open AnDosBox that you have already installed. It will look same as like DoxBox that is used in windows.
6. Enter below lines or commands and press enter after each line. You can get the keyboard by pressing the option button situated at left side of your device.
cd tc
cd bin

        1. I m Redmi not 3 user..every step I found coorecr bt one step that is to move tc folder on sd card it’s wrong.when I did these it unable Nd not working but when I move to internal it’s work..

          It’s really a good aap.thank you soooooooooo much

      cd tc
      cd bin

    1. Here after giving tc command it is showing a type of error – unable to change to: tc now what should i do to able it

    1. Just click on the link given in the article, then after 5 seconds click on "skip this ad" button located at top right of the page, after that you will be redirected to download page, there click on the download button to download the file.

        1. Just click on option button at left bottom side of your mobile, now a small option window will open, there select option "Resize". I have also explained the process in above video tutorial.

          1. Hey..in my mbl command is not working
            It showing me that unable to change to:tc when i typed the first comment cd tc and shows illegal commands for the rest.. How to solve it?

  2. I have moved TC folder to 'sd memory' n even reinstalled the app many times.But still, its unable to change its directory to tc.Please sort this problem out….

    1. Actually I have tested this in gingerbread and jeally bean. May be it is not working in kitkat. Try the process again, it might work.

  3. Hi guyz.
    I also had the same problem of "unable to change".
    There are 2 types of sd card in kitkat
    1-Internal meomry (sdcard0)
    2-external memory (sd card1)
    so paste the "TC" folder in internal memory (sd card0).
    It should work.
    Mine worked

  4. Thanks a lot worked on my phone..though the sounds were not working…plz reply if u know how

    If you want to start turbo-c directly,find the file dosbox.conf in your internal memory,open it using a text editor and add the line you type in start
    ie: cd tc
    cd bin

    note:add these at the very end of the file…(also DO NOT remove anything from the file)
    now turbo-c will start up by itself every time u open the dosbox app..

  5. Shubham Meharkure

    I have done same stamps shown in video. But still not working. While entering command,msg it show "unable to Change tc" after pressing enter key.. Tell me solution

    1. Try to change the location of TC folder. Try the whole process by placing TC folder in internal storage.

  6. Got it, just copy your 'Tc folder to internal memory as well
    As to the external memory .
    Search for 'dosbox.conf' and add
    cd tc
    cd bin
    To the last lines (open it using text editor ,etc)
    Best of luck:-)

    1. First of all open dosbox then type ‘cls ‘ then ‘cd’ then ‘cd\tc\bin ‘ the lastly ‘tc’
      I am xamm shre that jt will work no copy pasting required

  7. i have typed and saved a program as nee.c
    but when I am running the program ….

    and i can't get the out put screen

  8. I am not able to do full screen …..its getting to cover only one third portion of screen… What should i do.??

    1. Press option key, a small window will slide up, there select Resize option to on full screen. You can watch above video, I have clearly explained this.

  9. I installed andosbox in my Asus mobile and it installed . I copied tc to sdcard and wen I open dosbox and if I type CD etc its not displaying in screen

  10. look i did everything as you said i got installed it ran i mounted it ,everything was good then i typed a graphics code ,when i compiled it it showed success but when i ran it ,it shows a error saying undefined symbol -closegraph in module noname.cpp

    i ran this simple code to try it
    it got compiled successfully but when i tried to run it showed error that i mentioned before
    please help and reply i really want to enjoy programming on my phone.

  11. I installed anDOSbox on my android device and put the TC folder on the internal memory of the phone. The thing is working fine until you work with graphics. When you use graphics.h you need to initgraph() and give the address to the BGI folder right. There I tried all the possible methods to link it to BGI by trying out addresses. But here it says linker error. How to give address to BGI on android device.

    1. This error is coming because graphics library is not enabled for linking. To enable it go to Options > Linker > Libraries and check the Graphics Library option. I hope this will solve your problem.

  12. I tried to run the simple hello world program using this ide but out of five instructions three were error prone saying unable to open iostream.h file and unable to open conio.h file and getch() should have prototype why it is unable to include the iostream file please answer fast
