    VS 2003 does not compile

    I'm trying to compile a non .NET C++ code in Visual Studio .NET 2003:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    	cout << "hello world" << endl;
    	return(0);
    }
    When I get the next weird error message:
    c:\test_proj\test_proj.cpp(10): fatal error C1010: unexpected end of file while looking for precompiled header directive
    Does anyone know why do I get the error?


    Thank you.

    If that is MFC I think you needed to include

    StdAfx.h

    well that's just it... the default project does not compile even with the stdafx.h, unless i disable the option....

    Try creating a new empty Win32 Console project by following these instructions

    Then enter your code again, and see if it compiles fine without you needing to disable the precompiled headers.
