When I compile a 16-bit apps in Borland C++ 5.0, I got a tlink problem: while doing "Transfering to "tlink.exe @filename.r$p",a dialog popped up with a message
"This component must be run from the Borland C++ IDE".  After I clicked
"OK" to on this dialog, the error message "could not load: tlink.exe"
appears in the BC++ Message window.

Anybody has any idea about it? TIA.

You should edit the text of this question or add a comment to it yourself, instead of creating a new question. You can still add the other question a comment to this and then delete the other question.

It looks like your installation cannot find the tlink.exe program that is only used to link 16-bit targets. Take a look in the bin directory of the Borland C++ installation. Make sure you install all the 16-bit stuff when installing Borland C++.
For linking 32-bit stuff, either a buildin or the external tlink32.exe is used.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.  The tlink.exe is indeed in BC5/bin dir.  The problem here, I think, is that, the installation process left out some files required to load tlink.exe because the error message was "could not load tlink.exe".  Would it be possible for you to send me all file related to 16-bit tlink in BC5/bin dir?  TIA
