Convert Borland makefile to MS Visual Studio

6 New Member
I have a borland C++ makefile for a project created in Borland C++ which I wanted to translate into microsoft visual studio compatible makefile, so that I can build-Compile-debug the whole project in Visual Studio editor.

The obvious reason for this translation is that, I am not able to debug the whole project for some run-time errors.

can anybody help me out in this?

Your easiest solution is to create a Visual Studio project and add your source files it. Visual Studio will create the makefile when you build and destroy it when the build is complete.

Unless you have an unusual situation, you don't need to keep makefiles when using Visual Studio.
