Abstract: Describes some of the steps involved with working with the, now unsupported, OWL library.
Unfortunately, Borland has been phasing out support for the OWL for the last couple years and C++Builder 5 does not have any native support for the OWL. That is to say, BCB 5 does not ship with the OWL and does not contain any wizards to create OWL projects.
Support for OWL has been taken up by a user group named OWLNext. They periodically release patches to the OWL and have a version of OWL that does work with BCB 5. Check out their website here: http://owlnext.sourceforge.net
There are two basic challenges you must address in getting your application to compile with BCB 5:
Customers have reported that OWLNext has done a great job in carrying OWL and making sure it is compatable with many different versions of BCB. With a little persisence and patience, you OWL project can be built with BCB.
