    New to Combo Boxes

    Hello,

    I am trying to create a simple window and then put a combo box in it. I have viewed many posts and tuorials, all of which are posing problems. I believe my problem is due to the fact that I am using a unix based compiler because I get a pretty "blah blah has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." when I try to run it through Visual C++ 6. Could someone please point me in the right direction if you have any ideas?

    Ok, actual question. I apologize for being vague. Is it possible to create windows and combo boxes with a unix based compiler or do I have to use Visual C++?

    As long as your have the headers/libraries (i.e. platform SDK), and your unix based compiler can make a win32 executable file, I would think you could do it. I know of one windows app that uses the MINGW compiler, which I believe is unix based, so it should be possible.

    Anyway, I'd suggest you make your post on the Windows Programming board over here:

    http://cboard.cprogramming.com/windows-programming/

    and maybe post some code that ended up giving you runtime error.

    Thanks for your help. Whether it works or not I have yet to figure out; however, the IT gal here at work found the original copy of Visual Studio (it originally came from a burnt copy that was missing pieces) and has reinstalled it so the code now works. Sorry to bother you. Shannon
