    i have borland BC5 and borland C++builder 5 running on the same drive. They operate just fine with very few conflicts.
    what exactly is "this and that"?
    i do not remember having to change or move anything when i installed either one of these packages.
    more info please.

    The bin directory is the folder inside of your borland\bcc55 folder wich contains the compiler and linker. To set it up follow the instrunctions. Just create the .cfg files ( a .cfg file is just a renamed .txt file) and add the lines to them and put them in your bin directory.

    To compile go to msdos prompt and make sure that the current directory is in your bcc55\bin folder and type:

    bcc32 filename

    replace filename with the name of the file that you want to compile or the full path to it.
