    First, follow the instructions in the 'readme' file that is in the installation directory you put the compiler in. Use a text editor such as Notepad to make & edit the two cfg files named in the readme.

    Go here for a good intro:

    Go here for some simple windows examples using response & makefiles:

    Good luck.

    Did you change the search-path to include the bin-directory of the compiler? (type "bcc32" at the command line; if dos complains about not finding the command, then you should change autoexec.bat as indicated in the readme file (add a line like "PATH c:\borlandc\bin;%PATH%" somewhere). Then execute this file or reboot.

    If you try to compile a program and it complains about not finding header files, then you did something wrong with you cfg-files.

    hope this help

    Try using dev-c++
    Its a little/very buggy but its got a good overall performance
    I think the site might be down but it should be up in a copple of days
    its easer that Borland but doesn't have as many options.
    Try to help all less knowledgeable than yourself, within
    the limits provided by time, complexity and tolerance.
