5. Start DosBox and type the following commands:


mount c: e:\
c:
cd tc
install

6. The installation process will begin. Hit enter.

7. When prompted for the source drive, select C instead of A

8. On the next prompt, select Start installation and leave the installation path to C:\TC

9. After the installation finishes, hit enter and you will return to the mounted C drive on DosBox

10. To start Turbo C++ type the following commands:

    Hi,
    I’ve installed and running Borland Turbo C ++ 3.0 in DosBox 0.74. I have this peculiar problem: although I can type {, [, ] and } charactgers in DosBox executable, I cannot type in those characters into program in TurboC! The ready I load do display these characters alright.
