    Visual Studio 2003 Add New... problem

    For some reason I'm unable to add new .cpp / .h files with the IDE, I have to make them manually or choose to add a class. The option just isn't there.

    I've googled and not found anything. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone know how to resolve it?

    File menu -->New-->File... and select what you need from the 'new file' dialog.

    or

    In 'solution explorer', right-click the project name-->add-->new item...which opens the same 'new file' dialog.

    Are these options missing? Have you tried the first with no project opened? Have you tried with a completely new project?

    I know that's a C project but it's the same for C++ ones.

    That doesn't look too good. If creating any new project results in the same behaviour then I'd suggest just reinstalling/repairing msvs2003 to restore the default behaviour.
