    Visual Studio wont let me create .cpp

    I dont knowwhy, but visual studio wont let me create .cpp or .h files when i make a new blank project.

    I remember this happened to me a while ago. But i never got it fixed. Had to format days later so.

    Anyone know whats causing this and how to fix it?

    first, what version of visual studio?
    have you applied any service packs to it yet?

    without that info I can only speculate, either a: it's broken (duh), or b: file associations got screwed up and are somehow affecting it.

    oh, sorry.

    I have VS.NET 2003, i havent donwloaded/installed any updates.

    And well the last time i used it before it broke, was just fine, nothing unusual, i didnt do anything unusual either... idk why or how it got screwed up.

    hmm...never had that problem. I haven't checked, do they have sp1 for .net03 out yet? If so, try that. Or just reinstall. Doesn't seem like it's a big issue.
