    Can't install Mysql++ api

    Hi,

    I'm trying to install the MySQL++ 2.0.2 for Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 beta 2.

    Like the readme.txt says:
    Before you build the library, make sure the environment variables that Visual C++ needs are set up. Recent versions of the Visual
    Studio installer put a special CMD.EXE shortcut in the Start menu
    in the same folder as the IDE shortcuts; run this shortcut to
    get a command prompt with the variables all set up. The older
    way (which still works) is to run the vcvars32 batch file that
    comes with the tools. (It may not be in your PATH by default,
    so you might have to search your hard drive for it.)

    To create the Makefiles, say "makemake vc" in the project's root
    directory. You only have to do this once, unless you change
    Makefile.base or Makefile.vc. This also starts building the
    library and the examples.
    I start the Visual C++ Commdand Line, type makemake vc, But then I get an error a header file isn't found. I found the source of that header using google, and added to my include directory. But then I get an error that another header file is missing. I added that one too, but then again, and again, and again, and again..

    But now I'm really tired of adding all those header files.

    How can I fix this?

    Wherever you found the header file, add that directory to the search path for include files.

    That's not the problem, when I add the new header file, he does find the new header file. But then I get the error an other Header file is missing, and I'm tired of adding al those header files.

    not sure what the problem is....

    but i noticed something. you're indian (mid-east) aren't you? it doesn't really matter, but i'm curious as to why mid-eastern people never use the word "it". (they usually say "he" for some reason)
    i seem to have GCC 3.3.4
    But how do i start it?
    I dont have a menu for it or anything.

    yes, the new headers are all in the same folder.
    the folder is not in your default include path, so the headers are not found.

    I believe that the mysql++ lib is actually developed with vc++ version 6. ( ms's lack of compatability between versions of software bug / bad coding practice )

    did you set the environment variables the notes mention?
    or run the batch file to set them?

    Nope I'm Dutch :P We (in Holland) always use he. We don't have a word like 'It'.

    I ran the special CMD.exe In my Visual C++ start menu folder.

    And I put the new header files in my compiler's include directory
