    Building error

    Hello there;
    I am using Visual Studio 2010, and whenever I compile a source code ( even the template, nothing is wrong with the template right? ) it displays the message box where it says that there was build errors and then AVG jumps in telling me that the application is a potential threat. I pressed "add to exceptions". The AVG messages stopped but the building problem is still there, so what must I do guys? Anyone
    ?

    Well, I would start by looking at the build errors.

    Cannot open include file: 'excpt.h': No such file or directory
    This one is pretty self-explanatory, does the header file exist? If so, did you add it to your project? Did you include it with " ", e.g. #include "excpt.h" (correct), vice #include <excpt.h> (incorrect, most likely).

    I think the excpt.h is being included from windows.h, which means: what did you do with excpt.h and can you put it back?

    Well, there is no header file under the name excpt.h in the source code, besides I didn't type anything, the source should create an empty application ( whether it ia a console or windows application).

    I've never heard of it either, I'm just going by:
    c:\program files\microsoft sdks\windows\v7.0a\include\windows.h(151):

    Did you make an "empty project" or did you have the studio pre-generate code for you? Either way if you didn't type anything it sounds like a broken install.

    @tabstop: Haha...I guess I should really pay attention to posts.

    Yep, sounds like a broken installation, or you inadvertantly changed some settings if it was working before. Did you manually move stuff around?

    Well it gives you the path, did you open up the folder and look for the files yet?

    Yes it cant seem to find libraries <stdio> or <tchar>.
    I opened <stdafx> and it had #include <stdio.h> and #include <tchar.h>, but when I try to open them (from the IDE) it says :.

    File 'stdio.h; not found in current source file's directory or in build system paths.

    Right, I meant did you open up explorer and trace the path to where those files are suppose to be physically located on your computer?
