Using resource editor in MS VC++ 4.0
Posted on 1998-05-05
I have a very simple program (from Schildt's "Windows 95 Programming") which has a single menu with just a couple options. It works fine from VC++ V4.0 IFF I hand edit the resource script from scratch. I want to use the provided resource editor. When I try it, it creates the menu in a .rc file, it provides a resource.h file (which I include) and when I BUILD ALL, it appears to be compiling the resource script. But, when I run the program, there simply is no menu at all. I have not made any changes to the .c file which worked just fine with the hand-editted resource script, and have made sure that all of my identifiers are the same. But It just does not link in the resource file. What am I doing wrong?
