STL valarray problem

I'm programming in VS 6.0.
When I'm adding #include <valarray>
to one of my files and compile I receive 24 errors and 2 warnings in c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\valarray
mostly:"(167) : see reference to class template instantiation 'std::valarray<_Ty>' being compiled"

How can I fix this?

Could you post the code being complained about?

There is no code!!!!
just single line:
#include <valarray>
Post the code that you're trying to use the valarray include.

The problem is most-likely in your code, and not in the valarray file.
The compiler will point to the valarray file as the source of the error, but only because something in that file doesn't agree with your code.

I agree , apparently something is wrong with my code.
But how can I figure out what is it. Without that single line everything is perfect....
There are tens of classes and files.
Post the first 4 compile errors that you get.
Hi borlip,

I think problem is that some STL functions conflict with WinAPI macros (i.e. min, max) ...
so, you can simply include <valarray> before you include <windows.h>.

hope that helps,
