    Question Cannot find readme.txt? What's going on!

    Whenever I try to create a MFC App, I get the error:

    "Cannot find: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\VCWizards\AppWiz\MFC\Application\Templantes\1 033\readme.txt"

    After I click okay:

    "The operation could not be completed"

    This is strange because I have created a MFC App not too long ago. Now I get this error every time. Opening old MFC Apps is fine however.

    What do I have to do to solve this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Put a blank text file named readme.txt in that directory?

    Thanks for your reply...

    Now it says

    "Error occurred processing template file: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\VCWizards\AppWiz\MFC\Application\Templantes\1 033\readme.txt"

    Apparently this file was deleted... but how? And where can I get it again?

    That's odd... it's just a template. Can you create a blank MFC app, without the whole template?

    If nothing works, you will have to use repair on the Visual Studio disk.

    Reinstall / repair your compiler then.
    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.
