    Firstly lets get a few things straight:

    What os are you using.
    What version of it are you trying to instal (the free one or the full version).
    How are you trying to install it?
    What error has it come up with. . . . .

    the list goes on.

    1. Download 'freecommandLinetools.exe' package from borland site (~8.7MB).
    2. Run 'freecommandLinetools.exe'
    3. Follow the instructions, selecting a directory of your choice to install to or let it install to a default directory.
    4. Follow the instructions in the 'readme.txt' in the main install directory.

    If your just getting a command line compiler then I don't see why you would want to use borland. Personally I'd recomend something like mingw.

    There are some really good compiler independent IDE's around. Like CodeWright, PFE or something like that you can use just one IDE with many compilers.

    Some time ago there was one also having problems installing Borland C++ Compiler 5.5. Take a look at that thread.

    Don't forget in the 'bin directory' of Bcc 5.5 you have to add two files.

    The first one called 'Bcc32.cfg' with full include dir path and full lib dir path. Here is mine :

    **********************************************
    -w
    -I"E:\BORLAND\BCC55\Include"
    -L"E:\BORLAND\BCC55\Lib;E:\BORLAND\BCC55\Lib\PSD K"
    **********************************************

    The second one is for the linker and its name is 'Ilink32.cfg'
    Here is mine :

    **********************************************
    -x
    -L"E:\BORLAND\BCC55\Lib;E:\BORLAND\BCC55\Lib\PSD K"
    **********************************************

    With :

    bcc32.exe hello.c
    or
    bcc32.exe hello.cpp
    for console apps (main function).

    For Windows apps (Winmain function):
    bcc32.exe -W hello.c
