I am just starting to learn programming in C++, I have Borland C++ Version 4.0.  The problem is when I attempt to Compile even the simplest problem I end up getting the error "could not open input file hello.rc"  The program is directly out of a "teach yourself Borland book", I have followed setting according to the book as follows:
According to the book, I have selected the "New Project" option entered the project name and directory, then choose the "EasyWin [.exe]" target type from there I checked the .cpp node in the advanced settings.  I then typed in my program and compiled it and get the error.  The program is directly out of the book, so I believe the problem is with the my Borland C++ program setup.  Can someone help me out?  Thanks.

Open the project window and delete the .RC node.

I deleted the both nodes ".rc"  and ".def" and this is the error I come up with now. What else can I try?  Thanks

"Linker Warning: No module definition file specified: using defaults"
"Linker Fatal: Unable to open file 'c0wl.obj'"

>> "Linker Warning: No module definition file specified: using defaults"
This is normal.

>> "Linker Fatal: Unable to open file 'c0wl.obj"
First, try to locate the file manually.  If you succeed, you must have set up the search directories wrong.  If the file is not on your disk, you didn't install all the possible configurations.
The "c0*.obj" files are the 'C' startup code.  The "w" probably means windows or quickwin.  The "l" means large model.  Either try a different model or reinstall (custom install) and make sure to include the above options.

Thanks, it appears I didn't have the large model installed when I loaded the program.
