I have obtained a large project written in Borland C++ Ver 5.01. I am using Visual C++ Ver 6. Is there a way to painlessly convert from one to the other.

If it was written with straight C/C++ and the Windows API, then you can easily create a Win32 project in VC++. However, if it was written in OWL, then it is not quite so simple. You still do not have to rewrite, but you do need to rebuild the OWL and BIDS libraries in VC++. There is some work you need to do here, but it is considerably less than rewriting it with VC++.

Borland C++ Builder is completely different from VC++ so there is a lot of hard work waiting for ya...

Yura Bidus has done a great job converting OWL to run with VC, you can download it at http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Campus/5642/owlnext.html
