CC2_Libs.lib unusable with CBuilder

The cc2_libs.lib file supplied in the SDK is a VC COFF format static library.
Unfortunately, Borland uses the Intel OMF format libraries.

Therefore I am unable to use the library with CBuilder to create plugins for CC2.

Is is possible to get the source files for the code included in the lib file?

I'd really appreciate the help, as of right now I am, stuck in the mud. :-(

Thanks in advance.

Greetings.

Have you considered using the free MSVC 2005 betas?

BCB's GUI design features are nice over MSVC's, but building plugins for CC2 wont use any of that.

I cant release the code for the libs, they contain too much CC2 core code.

Thanks, I already have VS .Net 2005 (I'm on the MSDN).

But, I HATE VC++.
Compared to the coding and IDE for BC++, it is like using stone knives and axes. ;-)

Maybe, besides a .lib for plugins, you might want to think about creating an ActiveX interface to CC2.
This way ANY tool could be used to interact with it.

Yeh, i had the same thoughts when i moved from BCB to MSVC (CrystalControl 1 was made in BCB).

Got used to it though (still nto sure if thats a good or a bad thing).

Load up the SDK in MSVC, see what you think.
All the project settings should be ok, so it should compile fine straight off.
