# Thread: visual c++ error

1. ## visual c++ error

hi,

when i try building my code with visual c++ 2005 Express Edition..

the compiler gives the error..

fatal error C1010: unexpected end of file while looking for precompiled header. Did you forget to add '#include "stdafx.h"' to your source?

but when i use cygwin (g++) it compiles and runs fine...can someone tell me how i can fix this error...

btw...when i do inlcude the suggested file ...it gives a new error
fatal error C1083: Cannot open precompiled header file: 'Debug\inheritance.pch': No such file or directory
Square.cpp

thanks.

2. look in project options and turn off precompiled headers

3. after you include that file, delete everything in the debug folder of your project, if you still get the debug error when you compile again, post the error message

4. You don't need precompiled headers for a simple, portable program. Turn them off instead of including the file. When you create your project, make sure you create a blank solution instead of a Win32 Console Application. I believe the blank solution starts out with precompiled headers turned off, although I don't have the 2005 version to be sure.
