How to replace your tutor with someone who has a clue?
Seriously, we're pretty much done with supporting fossilware like TurbidC.
Pester your tutor, and let THEM feel all the frustration of supporting that ancient s/w on your modern OS. Perhaps then they might stop clinging to the past and actually start teaching something relevant for when you finally enter the workplace.

What do you mean by "DOS box"? In Windows this usually refers to the 16 bit subsystem that provides a virtual environment for 16 bit code to run. Windows 7 32 bit retains this capability, and will run such code.
Another way to run 16 bit code is to use a full VM environment such as VirtualBox, Virtual PC or VMWare and install a full version of MS-DOS (or a DOS clone) on to it.
Either way 16 bit code will not run natively in a 32 bit environment, you need some sort of virtualisation. The only way to run 16 bit code natively without virtualisation is to boot directly into MS-DOS/DOS clone. You can set-up your system for dual boot or use a boot disk or USB stick. There are few advantages however, and many disadvantages unless you are doing low-level hardware programming.
There are a number of more capable free 32 bit compilers however; why would you not simply use one of them?
