    I've had it the whole time but It just can't open conio.h? It's Borland 5.5, conio.h came with the compiler it's just that it doesn't open it? Can anybody help?

    if

    #include <conio.h>

    doesn't work, try

    #include "conio.h"

    Just a thought.

    Please don't post the contents of a header, they're virtually useless.
    #include <conio.h>

    doesn't work, try

    #include "conio.h"
    This won't help either, I'm afraid.

    drdroid, is this Borland 5.5 you're having trouble with? If so, you need to editor two text files in the Borland directory (*.cfg) and basically configure the include directory. The instructions are in the link I gave you earlier.
    http://cplus.about.com/library/weekly/aa031502a.htm
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Have you read the link?
    Look:
    http://cplus.about.com/library/weekly/aa031502b.htm
    Step 6: A configuration file, bcc32.cfg, which tells the compiler where to find include files must be created. This can be done using Notepad. Create a the document shown below and save it as c:\Borland\BCC55\Bin\bcc32.cfg

    Step 7: A configuration file, ilink32.cfg, which tells the compiler where to find library files must be created. This can be done using Notepad. Create a the document shown below and save it as c:\Borland\BCC55\Bin\ilink32.cfg
    If you have installed Borland in another directory (ie not the one specified above), make sure you put the two *.cfg files in _your_ Borland's bin directory
    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    What do you mean _it_ can't find it? Can you compile this, if not post (cut/paste) the compiler errors.
    Code:
    #include <conio.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        getch();
        return 0;
    }
    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    OK, now can you post the full path name to bcc32.exe and the contents of bcc32.cfg (found in the same directory as the exe). I'm running low on options here though, providing you've followed the instructions correctly
    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    Well, I can't give you a definate answer, but I can tell you this:

    On my setup, if I rename my conio.h file, I get a different error when compiling to the one you gave.

    If I change the directory on the -I option to point to a non-existance directory, then I get the same error as you. So the problem is finding the directory, not just the file.

    Now, you shouldn't need two -I options, the Lib one should be -L.

    Double check your directory namings in the bcc32.cfg file.

    Other than that, and retracing the install procedure, I'm all out of options.

    [edit]Example of mine:
    -I".;e:\borland\bcc55\include"
    -L".;e:\borland\bcc55\lib"
    -O1
    -v
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
