    Using VC Toolkit 2003

    I tried to compile a source file that I already had, but I got several errors pertaining to my include files...

    So... what was I supposed to do that I didn't do?

    >>WIN.H<<

    That looks like an lcc specific header. Try #include <windows.h> instead, it should sort out all those 'type' issue with the opengl headers too. You'll need the platform sdk installed, if you haven't already done so.

    Oh... thanks.


    Ok, I think I fixed the windows.h problem, but now I'm having other problems with the gl header. I'm getting a bunch of these errors:
    Code:
    gl\gl.h(1151) : error C2054: expected '(' to follow 'WINGDIAPI'
    gl\gl.h(1151) : error C2085: 'APIENTRY' : not in formal parameter list
    gl\gl.h(1151) : error C2146: syntax error : missing ',' before identifier 'glAccum'
    gl\gl.h(1151) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '('
    gl\gl.h(1151) : error C2059: syntax error : ')'
    gl\gl.h(1152) : error C2054: expected '(' to follow'WINGDIAPI'
    gl\gl.h(1152) : error C2085: 'APIENTRY' : not in formal parameter list
    gl\gl.h(1152) : error C2146: syntax error : missing ',' before identifier 'glAlphaFunc'
    gl\gl.h(1152) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '('
    gl\gl.h(1152) : error C2059: syntax error : ')'
    gl\gl.h(1153) : error C2054: expected '(' to follow 'WINGDIAPI'
    Do I need the SDK for this? What is it exactly? I don't really want to install it unless I really need to.

    The Platform SDK includes the Win32 and OpenGL libraries. The Platform SDK also contains many other things for Win32 development. The following page has more information.

    Using Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition with the Microsoft Platform SDK

    I usually suggest to people to try MinGW first. It comes bundled with the following two C++ IDEs, and they also include template OpenGL projects.

    starting out with a real compiler that's used in the real world is better than starting with a toy that no potential future employer will ever use...

    The extra time needed to set up Microsoft's (or Borland's) free compilers is the price you pay for getting them free (the complete products do all that for you as well as including more options).

    Ok, thanks.
    All the header errors are gone. Now it just doesn't like my source code.

    In C89, which is the language supported by VC, all variables must be declared at the top of the block.
    Code:
    int main(...)
    {
        int i;
        long l;
    
        i = 10;
    
        char c; // error, all declarations must be before the first statement...
    }
    Variables can be declared in the middle of a block in C99 (which is largely supported by GCC) or C++.

    I also suggest that you consider getting Dev-C++ as a second compiler. It is a good idea to have a couple of compilers so that you can produce portable code. A second compiler will also often show up extra warnings and bugs. GCC (as used by Dev-C++) is not a 'toy compiler'. Our communication here is made possible with several pieces of software compiled with GCC.

    Oh, thanks. I had no idea.

    Well, now it doesn't give me any errors, but it doesn't compile either. It just kinda sits there, as if the compiler had an infinite loop in it. Or does VC just take an extremely long time to compile?


    Also, how do you change the text under the username?

    So does anyone know why the compiler would freeze?
