    Well you could begin by telling us which compiler you're trying to use.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    What environment (compiler, OS, etc) is this in? Where is your stdio.h coming from [if you know]?

    Essenitally, you have either not installed the compiler environment correctly, or the header files you need aren't installed, or something else is wrong.

    IDE stands for "Integraded Developer Environment", and is answering the question like "What car are you driving" with "An estate".

    What IDE is it? Which compiler does it use?

    Bleigh! That is a compiler that was modern when I started with C in 1986 or so.

    At least we're getting somewhere. Did you do a full installation? What directory did you install into?

    Ehm, perhaps you want to use a name that fits in the "dos 8.3 format". E.g. c:\turboc

    The ~1 tells me that the name is longer [or otherwise different in ways that doesn't comply with the standard 8.3 format] than that. It may well be the cause if the problems you experience.

    The simple solution is to re-install in a directory that is shorter than 8 letters [and no spaces or other "funny" characters].

    So where did you install to now?

    And where are your file that you are compiling?

    How about you get rid of Turbo C since it sucks when compared with today's standards, and then get a real compiler?
