    By the way my ilink32.cfg is only one line. It looks like:
    -L"c:\Borland\Bcc55\lib"

    See the FAQ entry http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/...&id=1043284351 which contains the one I posted above.

    Well your StartBC.cmd contains this:
    PATH=C:\Borland\BCC55\BIN;C:\Borland\BC C55;%PATH%
    DOSKEY /INSERT

    Your ilink32.cfg contains this (plus more stuff if you want):
    -L"c:\Borland\Bcc55\lib"

    Yeah, that's where the StartBC.cmd file goes. And the ilink32.cfg goes under the BIN directory.

    There is another problem. I have saved SC1 in the bin section as well as the SciTEGlobal.properties and changed the starBC.bat. now when i open the short cut SC1 opens as well as the command prompt. When i try to compile inside Sc1 (like it says in the instructions) the compile button is grayed out. what have i done wrong??? although every other step has worked perfectly.

    Well I wish I could help you. I just downloaded SciTE (SC1.EXE) and tried running it by adding START C:\BORLAND\BCC55\BIN\SC1.EXE to the StartBC.bat, and I got an error:
    BC1.EXE is not a valid Win32 application. The SciTE editor never popped up.

    But anyway, make sure you have the SciTEGlobal.properties file in the bin directory is about all I can tell you. It sounds like it's not seeing this file for some reason.

    What directory is it in now? From Windows Explorer, hover over the file, hold down the right mouse button, and drag the file to the bin directory. There are other ways also, like simply copying and pasting the file.

    I just checked, it's simply a text file. You can view it from any editor.

    You are probably getting a .txt added to the end of the filename (SciTEGlobal.properties.txt). To avoid that, right-click on the link, and choose Save Target As... When the dialog pops up, change Save as type: to All files. Make sure to save it to the bin directory.

    Another way to avoid adding an extension (for some editors) is to put double quotes around the filename; i.e., type "SciTEGlobal.properties". I think it works with notepad.

    Yeah, that should work too. Of course I would also recommend a different compiler. I gotta admit this SciTe editor looks interesting. I think it's only 200Kb, which can be a nice alternative to fancier editors.
