ok, last one for the night, i swear....
essentially, all i'm trying to do is create a win32 thread with the CreateThread function
(for those not familiar w/ it)
for whatever reason, the compiler is telling me that my function call does not match the definition of this function. i actually even tried copying someone's example code straight from a tutorial, and it's still giving me the same error message. anyway, here's my code:Code:HANDLE CreateThread ( LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES lpThreadAttributes, SIZE_T dwStackSize, LPTHREAD_START_ROUTINE lpStartAddress, LPVOID lpParameter, DWORD dwCreationFlags, LPDWORD lpThreadId )
.... any ideas??Code:DWORD genericThread; HANDLE updateThread; char lszThreadParam; strcpy(lszThreadParam,"3"); updateThread = CreateThread(NULL,0,CheckUpdates,&lszThreadParam,0,&genericThread);
