I'm hoping that someone can tell me wether there is a quick and easy way of converting code written for OWL to MFC supporting code. I'm wondering if a program has been written to do this as I have a lot of code to convert. Did Borland (or Inprise) ever advise costomers on how this was done.

I tried to convert from an old version of OWL into a newer version and it could not be done. Borland wouldn't help.

I doubt you could do it across to MFC. OWL sucks. MFC is the way to go.

Q. for gre, which version of OWL were you trying to convert, I thought of the possibility of converting from the original BC5.02 to C++ builder. Does C++ builder use OWL for it's default components?
