    Question Unexpected end of file error while looking for file

    Hello all!

    I am building a wn32 console app in vs.net 2003. When I attempt to build the app, I get an error that reads something like this:

    unexpected end of file error while looking for (file name here)

    What did I do to create this and how to I correct it?

    All help greatly appreciated!

    You can either turn off the option to use precompiled headers, which is available if you right click on the project within the solution explorer, and select options. It is there somewhere. There is something else you can do..... have you been messing with the stdafx.h and .cpp files? Hope this helps a bit.

    Thanks! I will try that. I have not had a reason to play with any of those other files, just been typing code and am now ready to build.

    That's why you should always check the option "Empty Project" when creating a project in VC++.
