Are you talking about Borland C++Builder 5.5, which you downloaded from the Borland community? That version only consists of the command-line tools. So the problem is the editor you are using. What editor are you using?

Not sure, but you could try this. When saving a file in notepad, you can add the name but also choose "Save as type". For this option choose the "*.*" file-type and then save your file as cfile.c.

You may also try enclosing the file name in quotes, i.e. "blah.c", when you save. This usually works for me if I need to save something in a program that usually assumes a certain file extension that I don't want.
