A Borland C Win 32 Screen Saver

Has anyone tried to write a screen saver using Borland C++ ?

Linking with the supplied SCRNSAVE.LIB produces a error indicating a missing Microsoft Library.

In Win 16, there is an example supplied with Borland v4.5 and this makes it easy.

However under Win 32, a screen saver is much more complex.
I need some example code or information on creating the preview window that runs within the Display Properties dialog.  

Switching to Visual C++ is not an option !
