Stuck with freebie BC++5.5 build of Win apps

Stuck with freebie BC++5.5 build of Win apps

Stuck with freebie BC++5.5 build of Win apps

    I have the free BC++5.5 download - so no GUI tools, IDE, or much help info. I have started at ground zero with Herb Schildt's book "Programming Windows 98 from the ground up".  I get up to chapter 4, where he introduces menus and resource files. I cannot figure out how to use brc32 to compile and add the menu resource.  Nothing happens to my exe file, compiled beforehand with "bcc32 -tW myprog.cpp".
    In the help file it says to use "brc32 myprog.rc" - which will bind the res to the exe - but no menu appears in the program when I run it.  I have double checked that the code is verbatim per the book and seemingly compiles ok.  Any help with how to use the command line tools to correctly compile and add resources will be appreciated.
    Am I missing -options ordoing things in the wrong order?
