Borland C++Builder 6

What is Borland C++Builder 6?

C++Builder is a rapid application development (RAD) environment. C++Builder includes tools that allow drag-and-drop visual development, making programming easier by incorporating a WYSIWYG graphical user interface builder.


Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named BCB.exe. The setup package generally installs about 128 files and is usually about 680 KB (696,315 bytes).
