    Taskbar Icons

    Hi,

    I have been trying to implement a taskbar icon into my application. I'm trying to use the class I found here. I so far just have the dialog show up, and create a CSysTrayIcon object. That's all. However, when I compile I get these errors:

    Code:

    I have the platform SDK installed. Can anyone tell me what's wrong? Thanks.

    Some of those are simple like the missing ';' before/after something. The other ones that say syntax error look like errors that happens in a resource file. Did you properly declare all the variables from the CodeProject snippets? Some even say missing type specifier. Some thing I've noticed with the CodeProject's examples is they are not always plug and play. Read the errors carefully and look through your code.

    Ok, I've found out what was wrong: I was including something that was already included, which I guess must cause problems. However, I have one more question. Now, I don't know if anyone will be able to answer this since I doubt that many have messed around with this code, but I'll try anyway. I'm trying to create a "CSysTrayIcon" object, and here is a quote from the website:
    Create an object of class CSysTrayIcon.
    Now, I try to do that and I get "missing type specifier" errors. I assume that I'm not supposed to be creating that type of object, but then I'm not sure what the documentation meant. Can anyone clear this up? Thanks.

    I also have one other problem. When I try to compile it without trying to create an object, it first told me that I was missing "mfc42d.lib". I searched for that file, found it, and added the directory to VC++. However, I now get the following error:
    Code:
    mfc42d.lib(MFC42D.DLL) : fatal error LNK1112: module machine type 'IA64' conflicts with target machine type 'X86'
    I know that this is an MFC library, but I don't know how that affects anything. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    In case you're still having problems:

    The missing classes etc. from your first post are part of MFC, which is a Microsoft wrapper around the Windows API.

    >>Now, I try to do that and I get "missing type specifier" errors.
    Are you including systrayicon.h?

    >>module machine type 'IA64' conflicts with target machine type 'X86'
    Looks like the library is built for a 64-bit platform, while you're trying to compile for 32-bit.

    Sorry I can't be of more help; I've never used MFC before myself.
    Just Google It. √

    Looks like the library is built for a 64-bit platform, while you're trying to compile for 32-bit.
    More specifically, the OP is trying to build for Itanium, and linking that with X86 32-bit code. Obviously, ALL of the code for a particular project needs to be compiled for ONE architecture, either X86, X64 or IA64 (or Alpha if you have an old compiler).
