    Newbie help with header files

    I'm getting an error trying to use a header file. Not knowing anything about C++ makes it pretty hard to figure out why. If anybody could help me out, I'd appreciate it.

    VehicleCollection.h
    Code:
    #ifndef VEHICLECOLLECTION_H
    #define VEHICLECOLLECTION_H
    
    class VehicleCollection
    {
        public:
            VehicleCollection();
            ~VehicleCollection(void);
    };
    
    #endif
    VehicleCollection.cpp
    Code:
    #include "VehicleCollection.h"
    
    VehicleCollection::VehicleCollection()
    {
    	
    }
    
    VehicleCollection::~VehicleCollection(void) {}
    Here's the error I get in VS.NET 2003:
    fatal error C1010: unexpected end of file while looking for precompiled header directive

    Do a search for "precompiled header"
    http://cboard.cprogramming.com/searc...searchid=31672
    Specifically, how to turn the damn thing off
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Thanks for the tip! So I guess I can get rid of the "stdafx" files it starts you off with?
