    Try a more modern compiler - MSVC (Microsoft Visual Studio) or GCC.

    "Best" depends on your definition.

    My recommendation - MSVC if you are using Windows and will only be developing for Windows (and don't mind paying for the premium versions). GCC otherwise (if you need it to be cross-platform, or if you are primarily developing on anything other than Windows, or you like free stuff).

    I personally use GCC on all platforms, because Linux is my primary development OS (GCC works on Windows, too. Just not as well supported).

    The express version is free.
    Let me google that for you

    You will have to pay for anything else, though (and piracy is not allowed).

    Visual C++ Downloads on MSDN

    I used to use Borland compilers, but I've now switched to using GCC, MinGW (GCC for windows) or occasionally LCC.

    Hello,
    If you use Linux like me the best is gcc that you can find here: GCC, the GNU Compiler Collection - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF), but if you use Windows the best compiler is the MinGW, that you can find here: MinGW | Minimalist GNU for Windows.

    Thanks,
    Nathan Paulino Campos

    There is no "best". It's subjective. I would keep that in mind.
    Furthermore, I would guess that the OP is using Windows due to Borland being Windows and asking for the Windows compiler link.
    Aside from that, you're just repeating what's already been mentioned.
