    Heap(free store) and win32

    Ok I've created a class with its respective .h and .cpp files and then I included it on a small win32/direct x game I am making....

    if I do this....

    Meteor *EnemyMeteor=new Meteor;
    EnemyMeteor->SetX1Coordinate(100);

    it doesn't work while this DOES


    Meteor MeteorList;
    MeteorList.SetX1Coordinate(125);

    is it illegal to create a object on the heap while within a win32 application?

    No, you have a problem elsewhere. What does "doesn't work" mean?
