Borland Turbo C++ and SimConnect

Recommended Posts

Hi all.For a few months, Borland has been offering their new Turbo C++ RAD environment for free. The advantage of using this with SimConnect is that it allows Windows forms to be easily used in a native ( win32 ) application. use this with SimConnect, you need a different LIB file, as the SDK only gives you a COFF type library, while you need a OMF type for Borland... no problem: zip file uses Borland_SimConnect.lib for library access. Also included is the "sample.exe.manifest" ( edit the name to match your *.exe ), and "Sample.rc" whose contents need to be edited to match your renamed "*.exe.manifest".Add the edited Sample.rc and the Borland_SimConnect.lib to your project, and you're good to go in compiling the SDK examples. You can then branch out with the Borland RAD environment to quickly build fancy win32 apps that do not require the .NET frameworks.Note: to install the Turbo C++ on your computer, you'll need to install the prerequisites... which oddly need the .NET 1.1 runtimes! The old NET is needed for the compiler... not for your programs!Have fun... here's an example Borland C++ project and files:
