Still stuck with MSVC++ Graphics :(

I'm still trying to use graphics in C++, but I'm not getting anywhere.  I tried to use the CDC class, but I got a LNK1104 error that said I was missing the "nafxcwd.lib" file.  Is there a place I can get this?  Direct Draw would still be nice to use (If I had some sample code to go from).  Please help, I was so close the first time.

Which version Visual C++ are you using? The file should be there after the installation. I remember you have to make some library files yourself with 16-bit version Visaul C++. Look into the MFC Technical Note "TN033: DLL Version of MFC" for how to make the library file. The DirectX SDK (now it has been integrated into the Platform SDK) has not only tutorials but also documentations and samples.

Check your Lib directory (\Program Files\DevStudio\Vc\MFC\Lib) to see if the "nafxcwd.lib" file is there. If not, run your Visual C++ setup to install it.

I just re-installed VC++ and I'm getting the same error.  If some one could show me some sample source code for using Direct Draw, I would be gratefull.

The missing lib file has nothing to do with DirectX. What are your project settings? Do you specify Using MFC? Did you check the mfc\lib directory? There are a lot of DirectDraw samples that come with Visual C++ 5.0.

I created a new Win32 app for my project, and wasn't prompted to make any setting choices, so I am using the default settings.  I checked my entire HD and the MSVC++ CD for the lib file and I could not find it.  I also tried the Direct Draw samples but I got some errors on undeclared identifiers.  Is there a library I need to include?

For the newly created Win32 project, you should set it Using MFC (Project/Settings...) if you are using MFC.

For the Direct Draw samples, you may need to link with ddraw.lib.
