    Rational rose and Visual C++

    Is it possible to "import" a Visual c++ project (workspace .dsw) files into Rational rose and let it create a class diagram for you?

    Is this before or after
    - trying it
    - reading the manual
    - reading the RR website

    Also, not a C++ question, it's about the tools (or other technical matters).
    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.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Sorry I wasn't quite sure where to put it.

    Of course I tried it but didn't suceed.

    Rational Rose has this C++ Analyzer that should analyze all the .h and .cpp files and then export to Rational Rose. But this analyzer doesn't find all the MFC libraries that I included and I don't see anywhere to "point" to their location and it gives other semantical errors?

    I managed to get Rational Rose to create a class diagram using a very simple project so basically the problem is with other include files mainly with MFC libraries


    EDIT: I found where to show the analyzer the path to the include files
    I had to manually input them:
    ROSECPPHOME = c:\program files\rational\rose\c++
    MSVC60 = c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include
    MFC60 = c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\mfc\include
    ATL60 = c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\atl\include

    It finds some of the include files now but still reports alot of semantical mistakes. When I export and open in Rational Rose everything is just blank.
