I have spent many many many hours and have come to the conclusion that this cannot be done. In theory, yes, but in practice you will be bashing your head into a rubber wall.

If someone out there actually has done this I am as interested as you are.

The easiest way to do what you want is exchanging DLL and H files between compilers. I've did this with success. Another way is exchanging LIB and H files.
Good luck.

There was this pretty good article in I think DDJ or WDJ about using C++ Builder. Now, let me tell you something, there is a statement in the article saying, don't even bother putting MFC and C++ Builder together. It is not like Borland C++.

So I think the only solution is what AVaulin has suggested.

The only way that is supported by Borland and that will compile is to get the recompiled libs and .h files that unfortunately only come with BC++ 5.02.  If you own the Professional or higher version of Borland Builder BC++ 5.02 is available for free.  See http://www.nh.ultranet.com/~bsturk for more details on the free compiler.  Hacking the MFC .h files are a pain, I have used the files from BC++ 5.02 and it compiles MFC code just fine.
