Linker errors

WHY would it even say this each file gets included once!(except standard headers like stdio.h) and it gives me this!!

oh and this stuff shouldnt be getting redefined in these obj files (its only including everything 1 time!)

skloseCommented:
This occurs when you
#include a .cpp file ie
#include "file.cpp" instead of
#include "file.h"

Have a check for this in your code. Let me know how you go.

Also if the #include thing is not applicable have a look at

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q148/6/52.asp

It discusses the error LNK2005 in more detail than I can explain here.

If you are still having trouble email me the source code.

Cheers

ok but if i include the h files i cant get it to compile cause all my variables go down the drain for some reason (even though i set the h files to include the cpp files) its really annoying....

Ill look into it later its too early now ;) (7am)
