a static library is built using visual studio

the *.lib file and its header is placed in the borland project folder

in borland the path to libraries is set to the project folder

the visual studio created header is #included in the borland code and the header compiles ok evidenced by the fact that the types defined in the header are available in the borland code

Q is: what is required to use the functions defined in the *.lib file?

keep in mind that a DLL is not desired!

You can't use a static library made for VC++ (or any other compiler for
that matter). Static libraries are not cross-compiler, for any number
of reasons, from naming conventions to internal structure differences.

You can also do it yourself using impdef and such. A few pages
that are "Must See" for using 3rd party DLLs:
