    Question Using Mersenne Twister in C++ programs/Including a header file

    Hi. I am trying to use Mersenne twister in my program. (Using Microsoft VS 2003.) I transferred the header file into my project, #included it, but it's coming up with this error:
    fatal error C1803: Cannot open include file: 'MersenneTwister.h' : No such file or directory.

    Any help would be nice.

    I transferred the header file into my project, #included it, but it's coming up with this error:
    What were your exact steps when you did that? I'm guessing you didn't insert the file in your project. Just because a file is open does not mean it's part of your project.

    Can you use any other non-standard header files?

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    When I opened the header file, I went to File>Move "MersenneTwister.h" to this project, or whatever it said. In solution explorer, under header files, the file is showing up, so it is definately part of my project.

    Your compiler can't find the file. Did you spell the name of the file correctly in the include?
