I recently installed VS Express 2008. I also installed the Platform SDK. However, I'm not sure I installed it correctly. Basically, I installed it because I want to program a bot for the game Half-Life, and I know I need it for that. However, after installing the Platform SDK, I know you need to go to Tools/ Options/ Projects and Solutions/ VC++ Directories, and change your include and library folder settings.
For the include settings, I added the line:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.1\Include"
and for the library settings, I added the line:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.1\Lib"
However, I can't get the bot to compile, and it tells me stuff about not being able to find files, so I'm wondering if maybe I havn't set these options correctly? Anyone know if I'm making a mistake with this?
