Hi,

I got some source files which i am putting in a project . They  make use of MFC, I changed the settings of the project, to "USE MFC LINKED"

But when i build the project it still can't find "stdafx.h"

How do i instruct vc to regenerate stdafx.h?

Cheers

I'm not sure that I understood the problem, but I think it is better to tell the compiler in this case not to use precompiled header. Do that at: project->settings->/c/c++->precompiled headers. select Not using precompiled headers.

Basically I had a CPP file, which i wanted to run.  Which had no workspace or project.

I ended up creating a new one and copying in stdafx.h stdafx.cpp and resource.h

But i though VC should have handled all this for me

Thanks For Your Time

You can create new win32 project (file->new->projects->win32 application). Make sure you selected: 'A simple win32 application'. A project with stdafx.h stdafx.cpp and another .cpp file was created. Now you can copy/paste from the old project into the new project.

I think if you just double-click on the CPP file, VC will load it and create a workspace that is at least somewhat appropriate for running it.
