add in your project Winmm.lib
In Borland C++ for this open project, press INS,
chouse Winmm.lib and press OK.
In BCB4 add
ALLLIB = ... Winmm.lib (full path)

Code will generate this error message if it references something (like a function, variable, or label) that the linker can?t find in all the libraries and object files it searches. In general, there are two reasons this error occurs: what the code asks for doesn?t exist (the symbol is spelled incorrectly or uses the wrong case, for example), or the code asks for the wrong thing (you are using mixed versions of the libraries?some from one version of the product, others from another version).

Hi prinx,
if you use timeGetTime from dll, you must inport lib for that. Otherwise you have to declare for that function.
