I came across some code recently and would like to compile it. There's a .cpp file, along with a .dsp and .dsw file and they all have the same name. I use Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition and loaded them all into the same project. A number of errors were generated. I've also tried to compile the code with Dev-C++ but it also generates a load of errors.
Can I compile this with the software that I have or do I need a different compiler? I looked into the .dsw and .dsp files and I saw "Microsoft Developer Studio Project" - must I use this for compilation?
