    Arrow VS2010C++ error with assert when running exe

    Hi all, I wrote my program using DEV C++ and took the advice of many people to make the switch to visual c++. I've remade all my cpp and header files and it all compiles fine, but when i go to run the executable i get the following error:

    Sorry I don't have a microscope so I can't read the code.

    Have you tried setting break points and debugging the code?

    You created the asserts to check the validity of the input file. Your asserts failed. You're unable to deduce the cause of the failure of your own assertions?

    Or even if they're not your assertions, but automatically added, you still get a line number. Line 133 as I recall; I'll bet you're trying to open a file, for which you did not specify a path; and the file does not exist in the current working directory of your program. (EDIT: If I had realized someone would be so silly as to post a screenshot of their code, then I would have looked at both screenshots. Mea culpa.)

    that one cpp and header i took from an online source, so i suppose it seems the pathing for my images is wrong, if my image files are in the same place as my source code files do i need to do anything more than "image.bmp" ? ie. no /'s ?

    thanks

    If your path is just "image.bmp" with no /, then your file needs to be in the current directory of your .exe, which I believe is almost never the same directory that your source code is in. You can use this to tell you where the current directory is, or you can use SetCurrentDirectory to set the cwd, or you can just include the whole path.
