    I don't use Borlan, I use MSDEV, but I guess this reply will be valid all the same. You do not drop the headers into any directory. You leave them where they are. You add the directory where the DX headers are to the compilers headers search directory (the compilers include path). This can be done in ther setting of the Borland environnement...

    oh yeah I think I understand but in there I do sometthing like

    -I "C:\borland blah blah"
    -L"C;\borland\blah blah"


    so what do actually do is there another thing I should add or should I just temporarily change the paths and if I did that that would mean I wouldnt be able to use the standard header files would I the ones that come with borland

    I don't want to scare you, but...

    Is it MS DX8 SDK you have? I don't want to scare you, but I believe Microsoft "forgot" to include some necessary files for Borland users (I know, I have Borland ).
    Is it working for you?

    The include path can contain lots of paths. Maby you have to seperate them with ';' or something, like :
    "-L c:\temp\dx8;d:\trash\files;c:\borland\include" and so...

    Stupid me why was I thinking autoexe.bat?

    OK
    bcc32.cfg
    -I"C:\mssdk\include;c:\Borland\Bcc55\include"

    -L"c:\mssdx\lib;c:\Borland\Bcc55\lib;c:\Borland\Bcc 55\lib\psdk;C:\borland\bcc55\lib\sdl"

    ilink32.cfg
    -L"C:\mssdk\lib;c:\Borland\Bcc55\lib;c:\Borland\Bcc 55\lib\psdk"

    That for the defults.
