Hey everyone, all i am trying to do is bring up a CFileDialog window to select some files.
I am using VC++, opengl in a window (not mfc, but api)
Ive tried several code bits but none seem to work.
When i try to create an instance of CFileDialog, i get the following linker errors:

nafxcwd.lib(afxmem.obj) : error LNK2005: "void * __cdecl operator new(unsigned int)" (??2@YAPAXI@Z) already defined in LIBCD.lib(new.obj)
nafxcwd.lib(afxmem.obj) : error LNK2005: "void __cdecl operator delete(void *)" (??3@YAXPAX@Z) already defined in LIBCD.lib(dbgdel.obj)
nafxcwd.lib(afxmem.obj) : error LNK2005: "void * __cdecl operator new(unsigned int,int,char const *,int)" (??2@YAPAXIHPBDH@Z) already defined in LIBCD.lib(dbgnew.obj)
nafxcwd.lib(thrdcore.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __endthreadex
nafxcwd.lib(thrdcore.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __beginthreadex


any ideas how to get a file browsing thingy up?

If you are not using MFC then why bother about CFileDialog ??

Why not use API for this

    OPENFILENAME ofn={0};
    TCHAR filename[MAX_PATH];
    filename[0]= 0;

    ofn.lStructSize       = sizeof(OPENFILENAME);
    ofn.lpstrFilter       = _T("Text Files\0*.txt\0\0");
    ofn.lpstrFile         = filename;
    ofn.lpstrTitle        = TEXT("Open Media File...\0");
    ofn.Flags             = OFN_FILEMUSTEXIST | OFN_READONLY | OFN_PATHMUSTEXIST;
   
    if(GetOpenFileName((LPOPENFILENAME)&ofn))
    {
       // filename now has filename
    }

And another solution is to
to put LIBCD.LIB in the ignore lib edit box from project settings.

For __beginthreadex etc. you need to select multi-threaded CRT library for your project.

do this by opening C/C++ tab in project settings.
Select code-generation category and select Debug-multithreaded for Use rumtime library (debug mode). And multithreaded for Release mode.
