    some help setting up borland compiler please

    Hi,

    I don't know if this has been asked before, but I am trying to set up the borland complier. I have downloaded the 5.5 version and unpacked the file. I have pasted in -I"c:\Borland\Bcc55\include" and -L"c:\Borland\Bcc55\lib" into the notepad as it says to do in the instructions but when I try to save it as "c:\borland\bcc55\bin\bcc32.cfg". it says the file name is invalid, can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    In the save as dialog, try setting the file type to "all files"
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    I tried changing it to All files and it didn't work. Any other ideas?

    Do you have a c:\borland\bcc55\bin directory on your C: drive?

    Then what you could do is use Windows Explorer or some other file manager to go to c:\borland\bcc55\bin. Once there click the right mouse button, and do a New -> Text Document, and create the file bcc32.cfg from there. Then you can add the two lines by opening the file with Notepad, or another editor.
