Running Borland C++ BuilderX Mobile Edition v1.5 without MS Visual Studio 6 installed

I checked the C++ BuilderX news groups and they seems to be deserted. So I
decided to post my question here. I do appologise if you thik this is OT.

I am tring to use Borland C++ BuilderX Mobile Edition v1.5 to develop some
applications for the Symbian OS.
I installed
* Active Perl
* Symbian OS SKD 1.2
* Microsoft Debugging Tools
* Visual C++ Toolkit
* Borland C++ BuilderX Mobile Edition v1.5
and I receive following error messages when I try to compile application in
C++ Builder X.

I do receive the following error messages
abld -v reallyclean WINS UDEB
'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

Apperantly "nmake" is a program that comes with MS Visual Studio 6.

Isn't it possible to run Borland C++ BuilderX Mobile Edition v1.5 without
installing Microsoft Visual Studio 6 installed?
What is the point using C++ BuilderX if I have to have Microsoft Visual
Studio 6 ?
Please tell me that I'm mistaken. I hope this is not yet another fiasco of
Borland..

Yes this is off topic.


If I remeber correctly you can download the commandline tools of visual
studio from the microsoft site.

IIRC, nmake will be installed with the Platform SDK.

I believe it is installed also. When my brother installed the latest PSDK,
it did come with nmake.
