Since, I cannot link a 16bit .RES-File created with the Resource Workshop shipping with Borland C++ 3.1 into a Delphi 3 - Program, I need a 32bit Version or Convertor. Does anyone know, where to get that ? Is it free ?

1. Use the BC++ 3.1 Resource Workshop (or any resource extractor utility) to save the resources you're interested in as separate files (e.g. FOO.BMP, etc).
2. Create an ASCII text .RC file that includes those resources.
3. Compile the .RC file to a .RES file by using BRC -R or RC -R.
4. Include a line of the format
   {$R FILENAME.res}
   (replacing 'FILENAME' with the appropriate filename)
   in the main Delphi form unit (.PAS) or project (.DPR) file.
5. Rebuild your Delphi project.

You should then be able to access the resources scavenged from your 16-bit program in your new 32-bit program.
