moving from visual c++ 4.0 to 5.0 using mfc

I'm new to Visual C++.
Right know I am learning how to make 3D application using Direct 3D. My reference book is "3D Programming in Windows" by Nigel Thompson. The book use Visual C++ ver. 4.0 for the compiler.
I try the samples from the book, and it works fine with Visual C++ 4.0. But when I use Visual C++ 5.0 the compiler  stop at the linking process. It tells me : cannot find mfc40d.dll
facts : the mfc40d.dll file is there, and I try to put it on  the project setting, and directories option, but the program still won't work.
Anybody know the answer for this question ???
Thank you....

Recompile it with Visual C++ 5.0, it should not look for mfc40d.dll. What exactly is the error message?

You probably have a file that is compiled in .obj from VC4.0 and needs to be recompiled.  

There is the option 'Project - Clean' that should remove all old .obj files.  Then do a 'Project - Rebuild All'.

Reject the answer if it doesn't work and provide us with more info.

As you see, I'm new to Visual C++.
In the samples I'm using the author library and header files.
I guess that when I rebuild all, and do project-clean, the compiler does not compile the library and the header files.
How do we recompile the header and the library files ?
Is there any chance that the header and library file using command that only works for older version of mfc ?
Thank you for your suggestion

Hmmm...

What are the 'author' library and header files?

When you do a rebuild all, it doesn't compile WHAT library?

I'm overly confused on what you're asking.

Is this a project for an executable or a DLL library?
