Adding ATL object in MFC project

Hi,

I am trying to add an ATL object into my MFC project using MS VC++ 6.0.  I went to ClassView->New ATL Object, it gives me the following errors:

ATL Object Wizard:
AddIncludeFile(ProjectNameHeader, MIDLHeader)
You must have ATL setup correctly to insert an ATL object into your project.

What happened before this was that I successfully added an ATL object this way, but then MSDEV crashed.  I reinstalled the whole MS Visual Studio 6.0 and tried again.  And this is when I encounter the above problem.

How can I make this work?

you should have gotten a dialog box that asked if you wanted to add
support to your MFC project for ATL. if you answer yes it will insert the needed ATL includes and defines.  without the correct header file additions
ATL won't work. I think that code guru has a sample of the changes under the ATL catagory or If you create a TEST MFC project (SDI) and  then
use the Insert New ATL Object and answer yes to add support you can go
back into the header files and find the additions and use them.

Hmm, I have already clicked 'Yes' when I was asked 'Do you want to add ATL support to your MFC project?'.  But the errors that I listed still followed.  I am actually trying the suggestion on adding the necessary header files back from a test program.  It's a good getaround but won't fix the cause of the problem.  If you have further ideas, please feel free to shed some light.
