    Man, dump BCB and get MSVC or .NET. It will save you a lot of headaches.

    I'm only trying to help you. Trust us....several of us started out on BCB but when we moved to game programming it just wasn't feasible. It's not right and it's not fair, but I don't think Borland is going to sue Microsoft any time soon for having a near monopoly on compilers that work well with DirectX.
    Data types and everything are different. Even if you get the library to compile right, you probably will run into problems later.

    i also prefer the borland IDE but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do...
    i have to use between BCB6, MSVC6 or Dev-C++ but borland is the only one i like.
