I can''t help you with the borland compiler (I never did figure out how to work the no IDE deal myself). However, I have gone through the same book entirely with Bloodshed Dev-C++, and it''s a visual environment and everything (which I found much easier to get working, and it''s similar to the VC++ IDE), and I know from my own training that it works with everything that book covers. if your interested, sorry I can''t help with the borland compiler (that version is free for a reason *grin*)

If you can read this, All your base are belong to us!

Ok I sorted it myself!!!
You had to make a file and stick it into the bin directory with these 2 lines in it.


and call it bcc32.cfg

Then i downloaded a GUI for it :-)

It''s called VIDE.
