    Unhappy New to Borland C++ X Compiler (Not C++!)

    Can anyone tell me step by step how to build a file in Borland's C++ X IDE? I am new to the Borland stuff and the attached help files don't seem to be helping.

    I used Borland 5 when I first started, and then I switched to Microfofts Visual C++ 6. Borland seemed to cause too many problems for me, and when I started using directX 8 it took me a week to discover that the proper directx 8 lib files that come with it were not the right one's for borland compilers. They have to be downloaded seperatly to get it to compile properly. After that I switched and had no problems. Just thought that might help. Your just starting out - so you should be okay for a while. Also, with visual C++ 6, book code seems to compile with less problems. I know this didn't answer your question, but I wish someone told me about this before I got to deep into Borland. Probably someone warned me, but I have a memory like a sieve. Good luck!

    Not using Direct X Libraries...yet

    I thank you for your time and advice but you haven't exactly answered my question; is there a procedure for building and testing a project in Borland C++ Builder X? (it's not the typical Borland C++ builder)

    Sure there is, but which compiler are you using? Depending on the version, C++ Builder X can come with several Windows compilers, as well as compilers for other operating systems, which includes some mobile phones.

    "C++ Builder X" on it's own is just a multi-platform IDE with support for many different compilers.

    Which windows compiler? C++ Builder X can come with the Intel compiler, the Microsoft compiler, and a preview version of a new ANSI C++ compiler. Which are you using?
