Free Borland C++ 5.5 compiler download

RE: Free Borland C++ 5.5 compiler download

   I got it and have been a little stuck on the ground floor, just reworking my old C apps from days gone by.  All Console/command line stuff.  Now I'm starting on the curve of building Windows apps from the ground up.  I figured that I must use -tW with bcc32, but I have had no joy in adding resources (like menus, etc) with brc32 and brcc32. I would appreciate any help describing in detail the steps to get this right.
   I have: X.cpp, X.h and X.rc.  I first run 'bcc32 -tW X' and then 'brc32 X.rc', but the menu does not appear in X.exe when I run it. I get a blank client area, not even a menu bar across the top.  I'm working from Herb Schildt's excellent book "Programming Windows 98 from the ground up" - chapter 4.
