    ras.h errors

    I am trying to compile the following code:

    Code:
    #include <ras.h>
    
    
    bool IsConnected()
    {
       LPRASCONN TRasCon;
       RASCONNSTATUS Tstatus;
    
       DWORD lg;
       DWORD lpcon;
       bool lReturn;
    
       TRasCon->dwSize = 412;
       lg = 256 * TRasCon->dwSize;
       lReturn = false;
    
       if( RasEnumConnections(TRasCon, &lg, &lpcon) == 0 )
       {
           Tstatus.dwSize = 160;
           RasGetConnectStatus(TRasCon->hrasconn, &Tstatus);
    
           lReturn = ( Tstatus.rasconnstate == 0x2000 );
       }
    
       return( lReturn );
    }
    And I get the following errors:

    Error executing cl.exe.

    This make it look like there is a problem with ras.h, I also tried compiling this in LCC W32 and it highlighted things in ras.h, and both MSVC++ and LCC W32 use different ras.h files...
    Please help...

    Hmm...try including windows.h before ras.h?

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <ras.h>

    Tell your linker to link to rasapi32.lib

    Project->Settings->Link->Object/library modules

    it looks like you are getting cascading errors from as few as one or two errors, make sure you are linking with everything you need to and you don't have a misplaced ; or }

    EDIT: sorry, didn't see your first problem was fixed

    I'd reccomend trying http://bloodshed.net/, my school used MSVC, and I hated it.

    How would I go about writing a prototype for

    bool IsConnected()

    I've tried

    bool IsConnected();

    But it gives me errors, I have experiencing making prototypes for bool functions....I've never used boolean functions before...

    Code:
    bool myfunc();
    
    
    /*Make sure this function is after the prototype*/
    bool myfunc(){
    /*code*/
    }
    you may need a
    Code:
    typedef int short unsigned bool;
