    failure to import external C libraries in C++ project

    Hi,
    i use Visual Studio 2005 and i am trying to import some C libs statically in C++ code. In my StdAfx.h, i include the following:
    Code:
    ...
    extern "C"{
    
    #include <ok.h>
    
    #include <scardcl.h>
    
    }
    ...

    As soon as i try to compile, i get the following errors. Does anyone suspect what is going on?
    Code:
    ....
    
    StdAfx.cpp
    
    WINVER not defined. Defaulting to 0x0502 (Windows Server 2003)

    Didn't the repetitious nature of those errors clue you in that you possibly didn't have to post ALL that crap?

    No, we have no idea because you've supplied no code to tell us what you're doing.

    The first few are obvious. ok.h is doing #define BLAH, but BLAH was already #defined...
    For the others, just search for the error code. The MSDN usually tells you what caused it and how to fix it.
    Ex. C4430:
