#if _MSC_VER >= 1000
#pragma once
#endif // _MSC_VER >= 1000

class CMyclass : public CObject
     CString m_str;
     void PrintMsg();

#endif // !defined(AFX_MYCLASS_H__INCLUDED_)
/////////////////////// end ///////////////////////

///////////////////////// Myclass.cpp /////////////
#include "Myclass.h"


void CMyclass::PrintMsg()
     AfxMessageBox("Hello samuel");

you haveto include header file, used for creation of precompilated header, i the each project file being compiled.
Usually MSVC vizards create stdaf.h file and use it to create precompilated header.
To resolve your problem just rewrite your cpp file:
#include "stdafx.h" //<<!!!
#include "Myclass.h"
void CMyclass::PrintMsg()
    AfxMessageBox("Hello samuel");
/////////////////////// end //////////////////////

In some cases you do just need to add #include "stdafx.h" to the .cpp file.  This tells the compiler it is using precompiled headers.  However, there are situations in which you do not wish to use precompile headers.  In this case you need to go to the project settings, find the particular file in the tree on the left, click on the c\c++ tab and select precompiled headers from the combo.  Turn off precompiled headers for the particular file.  Since your are using MFC, in this case you need the first way.
