    Project settings

    I am not exactly sure what I am looking for, but in Microsoft visual C++, there is something called project settings where I need to change the way ints are read in. Normally 4 bytes are allocated for info and then an extra 4 bytes go at the end of that. I need to change the extra 4, but not exactly sure where to do this in project settings.

    Sorry I don't know more technical terms, I am kind of an idiot.

    Project Settings -> C/C++ -> Code Generation ->Struct member alignment

    edit: at least I think that's what you're talking about.

    that is exactly what I am talking about. Thank you so much
    Does that setting stay the same if I were to transport the source file to another computer and run it or does it need to be set everytime?

    it's stored in the dsp file. If you transfer it along with the cpp it will stay.
