Well you might also read this: How to run Turbo C on vista64 bit or Windows 7

basically though the best practice would be:

#1 download a modern C/C++ compiler like MSVS or Pelles C.
#2 Update your program to modern C -- many older C programs will make use of non-standard features of their specific compiler.
-- note that some programs really can not be updated, (like using graphics.h from TC) -- here you will have to use the older compiler and something like DOSBOX, or rewrite you program using a modern compiler and modern libraries).

#3 compile and run the program.
