    >>phrase Error in .rc<<

    Help us to help you - if you have a specific problem then please quote the exact error message and the line that error message refers to.

    *************

    MSDN: Resource definition statements.

    Differences are minor but generally:
    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #if !defined IDC_STATIC
    #define IDC_STATIC -1
    #endif
    #include "your_resource_defines.h"
    in your resource script for MinGW.

    I think every body knows "prase error" compiler just tells me line number and tells me prase error in xxx.rc where xxx is name of your .rc file for example:

    Code:
    IDD_ABOUT DIALOG DISCARDABLE  0, 0, 239, 66
    STYLE DS_MODALFRAME | WS_POPUP | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU
    CAPTION "My About Box"
    FONT 8, "MS Sans Serif"
    BEGIN
        DEFPUSHBUTTON   "&OK",IDOK,174,18,50,14
        PUSHBUTTON      "&Cancel",IDCANCEL,174,35,50,14
        GROUPBOX        "About this program...",IDC_STATIC,7,7,225,52
        CTEXT           "An example program showing how to use Dialog Boxes\r\n\r\nby theForger",
                        IDC_STATIC,16,18,144,33
    END
    the DevC++ compiler gives me error hilighting line
    Code:
    STYLE DS_MODALFRAME | WS_POPUP | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU
    and say prase error thats all

    By the way by dev C++ ver is 4.9.9.1

    >>I think every body knows "prase error"<<

    Nobody recognises "prase" errors, not even windres.

    My previous suggestion, when applied, will fix that 'prase' error.
