I want to use the function CFileFind::FindFile in my program. But whenever i try to compile i get the error, FindFile undeclared identifier.

Is there any particular library i have to include? If not, how do i get rid of this error?

Thanks

Try using...

#include <afx.h>

That should work.

I tried including <afx.h> and that didnt help. Any other suggestions?
Here is the code i am using, maybe it will help.

#include <afx.h>

int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,

LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)
{
      FindFile("wab.exe", 0);
}

Well...

You first would have to declare yourself an object of the CFileFind class...

CFileFind file;

then after that you have to call the function through its owner object...

file.FindFile("Wab.exe", 0);

this should do it.
