    Adding menu resource to the window... HELP!!!

    Hello
    Im trying to add a menu resource to my window.
    Im using that :
    CMainWnd::CMainWnd()
    {
    Create(NULL,"Step1",WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW,rectDefaul t,NULL,"IDR_MENU1");

    }

    If i change the ,"IDR_MENU1" to NULL it works fine but then no menu. If it stays like that i get ASSERSION ERROR just before its going to run. the program compiles well.
    Is there any other place I need to link the ID of the menu to??
    The ID of the menu is "IDR_MENU1"...
    HELP
    Thanks Alot

    arnt you supposed to go:

    MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDR_MENU1)?

    Just backing what Okie said:

    CMainWnd::CMainWnd()
    {
    Create(NULL,"Step1",WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW,rectDefaul t,NULL,MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDR_MENU1));

    }

    Alternatively whenever you name your menu IDR_MENU, you can change the name to "IDR_MENU" , the quotations around the name allow you to use it how you did originally without the macro MAKEINTRESOURCE. Just for your information.
