    External Dependencies

    When I compile and link a Win32 App, it creates an extra type of file in the workspace called external dependencies and it has a header file in it.

    Does anybody know what this header file is for (I'm using MSVC++)?

    Thanks.

    Those are files that your included files/mfc - included files (#include "xx.h" or #include <xx.h>) require.
    They are files not included in your project, but required to build your project

    Um...I don't program with MFC. I use the API (#include <windows.h>). Is that why, also?
