Delete all the files from the Temp folder under the users name in the C:\Documents and Settings folder.
 
How much disk space do you have free? How far back in vesions and years does the software go back to?

The Temp Folder Might not be in the Documents and Settings folder, Open system properties (Press windows key+pause/break) and click advanced. Click Environment Variables. In the variable called 'temp' and 'tmp' is the location of the temp folder.

If you hard drive doesn't have enough space left, then free up some space.

Who c++ software are you loading?  How old is it?

Some older software can't deal with free space over 2GB (32 bits).  It goes negative and the install software barfs out "Now enough free space".

Yeah and I beleive if it is the turbo vesion it is only 16bit and it won't install on a true 32bit system. Or at least I never was able to get the 16bit version to install.
