    Hello, everybody. I am the first time to use this useful software.
    I am trying to compile .cpp file directly in Emeditor. However, I find it diffcult to setting in External Tool.

    Suppose I installed the C++ Compiler in the directory
    C:BorlandBCC55Binbcc32.exe

    Could anyone explain how to setting in External Tool in detail? Thank you very much!

    I don’t know about Borland compiler, but if you just want to run:

    C:BorlandBCC55Binbcc32.exe filename

    then, you would specify:

    Command: C:BorlandBCC55Binbcc32.exe
    Arguments: $(Path)
    Initial Directory: $(Dir)
    Icon Path: C:BorlandBCC55Binbcc32.exe (or anything you want)
    Check Save File
    Check Use OutputBar

    Please let me know if you have further questions.

    Thank for your help! It work if the .cpp file is saved and the location is in my C: drive.

    However, if I saved the file at the desktop. The output message will show that:

    Borland C++ 5.5.1 for Win32 Copyright (c) 1993, 2000 Borland
    Error E2194: Could not find file ‘C:Documents.cpp’
    Error E2194: Could not find file ‘and.cpp’
    Error E2194: Could not find file ‘SettingsAdministratorDesktop1.cpp’

    Why this problem occurred? And how can I solve this problem whatever the file in any location?

    In addition, how can I set a shortcut key for this action.

    Thank you very much!

    That’s because there are spaces in the file path. You will need to surround the path with double quotes.

    Arguments: “$(Path)”

    To specify a shortcut key, use the Keyboard Map on the Help menu.
