MFC and dev-c++
I have decided to use c++/MFC to acomplish an assignment for the diploma that I am doing and am wondering how to get the MFC headers and libraries to work with dev-c++.
I have old versions of the libraries (from VC++ 5.0) though it would be good to know of the wereabouts of a d/load for the latest headers and libs.
Any tips on this would be of great help.
You can't link to VC++ libs with Dev-C++. If you want to use MFC with Dev you need to compile the whole source code (comes with VC++).
Thanks for the reply.
I imagine the source is pretty heavy with VC++ pragmas and even the bare code will probably need some lib that ships with VC++.......doubt you could easily recompile and link with another compiler (and I imagine M$ had this in mind when they first shipped the code with versions of VC++)
Very likely, yes. In particular, those pragmas are
#pragma comment(lib, arg)
#pragma once (MFC 7+)
and some others as well.
I was more hoping that there would be an easy d/load such as for DirectX sdk and others.
Anyway thanks for your help.
Guess that I am stuck with using VC++ for any MFC work.
