[ADMB Users] Installation with Borland compiler

If tpl2cpp is not recognized, then tpl2cpp.exe is not in the PATH.

Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the folder containing tpl2cpp.exe.

Now open a Dos shell and type

   echo %PATH%

and analyze how and why the folder containing tpl2cpp.exe is not in the 
PATH. Many things can go wrong when installing ADMB manually. If users 
improve the current instructions, they can contact Johnoel to upload on 
the website.

You may also be interested in ADMB-IDE 
(http://admb-project.googlecode.com/files/admb-ide-440-1.exe) if you don't 
mind using the GCC compiler instead of Borland. GCC is actively maintained 
and performs considerably faster than Borland according to my ADMB 
benchmarks. The ADMB-IDE installer sets up all the environment variables, 
so the user can start working immediately.
