Installation problems

Question: After installing ES 6.0 (69201) on Win XP Home using Borland CC, BCB can't link to vision2.lib, rendering ES unusable. (Projects Makefile expects a windows branch in bcb library path which doesn't exist.)
Answer: Fix the paths in vision2.ecf and wel.ecf.

Question: Now I run into linking problems. Recompiling everything doesn't help.
Answer: Abandon BCC and try again with msdk cc.
