    If your machine is well say less than 10 years old, I would anticipate that it is perfectly capable of running any combination of TC3 installations you care to mention.

    > "correct software developing"
    What on earth does this mean?

    I could be pedantic and just say the compiler and the linker.
    All the libraries you could live without if you enjoy building your own.
    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.

    ...the minimum required folders ?

    The install program should create all of the necessary folders/directories.

    I assume that you have a really good reason for using this outdated compiler.

    I also assume that you don't have the documentatin. Look for a README.TXT file. There may be some installation and/or usage information there.

    If you don't see a SETUP.EXE file, look for an INSTALL.EXE file.

    You may be able to find a used copy (complete with the printed manuals) on the Internet. You should also be able to find a (used?) book on the Internet.

    If I remember correctly, Turbo C++ was written for DOS or 16-bit Windows. You have a better chance of getting it working if you set-up a system with "correct" operating system. Again, you might find this information in the README file... or printed on the floppy discs... It is on floppy discs, right?
