Hey guys. Thanks for the time investigating this. My apologies for
being scarce this weekend. I hope to get caught up with things early in
the week, but wanted to post a quick note.
BCB6 compilation should NOT require any downloading of packages outside
of our 3 SVN repos: sword, icu-sword, biblecs. Simply following the
to checkout our SVN repository, and then opening the:
biblecs/CBuilder6/swordprj.bpg in BCB6 and choosing Project|Build All
This should produce a working executable. It does for me on a CLEAN
system. Please let me know if you CONFIRM that it does not for you.
