Borland Builder misplaced vcl.h header file

I currently have a version of Borland  C++ Builder that contains the VCL50.bpl library but the vcl.h header is absent (I think, due to my using 3rd party updates/bug fixes) making it possible only to run existing vcl dependant programs and not to compile new ones.  

Borland's own support do not seem interested unless you are ordering a new product.  Is there way of getting this file without re-downloading and re-installing the entire package from Borland.  If anyone could email it to me it would be a nice quick-fix.

Since it's trivial, I'll post it.

But, surely you can just copy it from the CD???.....

Thanks. That's fixed it.

I can't get hold of the installation files at the moment as I'm part of a multi-user liscence without a copy of the files.  The guy who installed the thing is on vacation so he wasn't available to sort it.  This is a real help, though no-doubt there will be other bugs from the 3rd party stuff.  If I find any before Graham (the admin guy) gets back then I'm sure I'll return.

Thanks again.
