    (Error message) Fatal: Unable to open file 'C.OBJ'


    I'm beginning to learn C++. I downloaded Borland 5.5 on my laptop that is running XP Home. I'm getting the following error message:

    Fatal: Unable to open file 'C.OBJ'

    What does this mean? Please help.

    well to start with I'd ditch borland 5.5. It's not a very good compiler and there are better alternatives available (the free msvc 2005 for a start)

    If you program in C++, you need Boost. You should also know how to use the Standard Library (STL). Want to make games? After reading this, I don't like WxWidgets anymore. Want to add some scripting to your App?

    C.OBJ is the object file that is created with a program. Like chaosEngine said, Borland 5.5 is pretty dated now. There is Borland 6.0, but I would still go with MSVC++ 2005 or even is still efficient. Avoid 6.0 as it is very dated. Another alternative, and takes less download time is DevC++, you can get it form the website and it is also free of charge. But make sure you get the latest version which is 4.992. Good luck
