MSVC++ (6.0 Standard Edition) crapped out on me when I chose to install Service Pack 6 (it stopped creating pre-compiled headers ). I tried creating a new project just to see if it was something to do with an old stdafx.h, but it still refused to make the .pch (gave an error saying it didn't exist, and if it didn't exist, it should be created, right???). so I un-installed and tried to install again and now it gives me an error.
I am sick of Microsoft's buggy compilers so have switched over to Bloodshed Dev-C++. I noticed Dev-C++ has a resource file compiler, but its not very "visual" (files need to be hard coded). so now I need to know all of the ins and outs of creating resource files for dialog boxes, etc. I found a tut at winprog.org but it doesn't cover enough on hard coding resource files.
so I am just wondering if someone here can please point me to a good tutorial on hard coding resource files for C/C++? maybe even a good freeware tool that will allow me to do it "visually"? any help would be greatly appreciated !
thanks alot in advance!
