Error: no compiler tool is associated with the file extension (*.h)

P: n/a
Hi

I have a code that compiles using
Turbo C++ for DOS version 1.01 from
http://community.borland.com/article...,21751,00.html

What is that I need to do so that it cmpiles on Visual Studio as well?

When I tried it & it needed some *.h files. I copied them (from the
Turbo C environment) and put it in there - now it says
"no compiler tool is associated with the file extension"

I am not happy with the Turbo C++ for DOS version 1.01.

That is why I am trying it on Visual Studio - could someone offer help
so that I can make it to work?

Thanks

Turbo C++ 1.01 is like 15 years old, if you need help with VS then why
not ask your question in one of their newsgroups?
microsoft.public.vstudio.general (thats one of many)
Or did you have a C++ question?

In general, copying missing implementation headers won't help. That's
because the library support isn't there either. You're likely talking
about stuff like conio.h, which is completely implementation-specific.
Most of the time it's used in fairly trivial ways and can be eliminated.

The best thing to do is get a decent modern text and learn ISO standard
C++ as your base. That will work on almost any recent implementation.
See the newsgroup FAQ for some guidelines.
