    Question Problem with Visual C++ Object-Oriented Programming Book.

    I have a book for c++ programming called Visual C++ Object-Oriented Programming, it makes a program thru the book called ZALTAR. When i try and compile the program i get lots of linker errors and some other errors... Any ideal what the problem is??

    Thanks ~GameGenie

    Executing  make...
    make.exe -f "C:\Dev-Cpp\Makefile.win" all

    yea your error are because it cant find several header
    files need for some of the functions.

    The book is about Visual C++, but you are using Dev-C++. These are two different IDE's. You should use Visual C++ if possible since that is the IDE that the book was intended for.

    If you cannot, then it might be possible to make the code work in Dev-C++ on Windows, but you'll have to make a few (or a lot of) changes. I'm not familiar enough with either the code or the IDE to help further.

    Thumbs down

    I have tried on Visual C++ and Dev, both get alot of errors. The book uses a older visual c++, i guess thats the problem with that.

    It's an inherent problem of choosing books which mention a specific compiler in the title, because invariably the code is written for that compiler rather than with reference to the language standards.
    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.

    ../VCOOP/CH24/stdafx.h:7:55: afxext.h: No such file or directory
    There's your two missing files, afxwin.h and afxext.h.


    Perhaps you could google them, they might be available for download somewhere?

    It looks like the project was done in MFC. You'll either need VC++ compiler or a compiler that has this library. Maybe the book came with a learner edition you could try.

    Maybe some of the errors are easy to fix. Can you also give the errors when you compile with Visual C++?
