    First Graphical Game

    Hi, I'm starting to get interested in designing graphical games. I am using Visual C++ .Net 2005 Express. The problem I am having is that when I compile my code, I get an error that it can't find objbase.h. I searched for it on my computer, and all I found was in Dev-C++. I included that, and it said it didn't understand include_next. Thanks for any advice.

    You can't steal a header from one compiler and just use it in a completely different one.

    I realize that, so, how to I fix the fact that it says I need objbase.h? Is there a different version of DirectX that I need to get or something? How do I get the objbase header?

    You most likely just need to download the DirectX SDK again, preferably from Microsoft, so that you know it works with their compilers. You may find what you're looking for here. http://msdn.microsoft.com/directx/sdk/

    Actually, objbase.h is part of the psdk. Download and install that first or, if you already have it installed, properly configure msvc-express to use it. Once you've done that, download/reinstall the directx sdk,if necessary, as described by citizen. If you've not already done so, configure msvc-express to use it in a similar fashion as used to configure the ide to use the psdk but ensure the dx directories are first.

    This essential configuration information(includes link to psdk download) can be read here:
