Hi!
check your projects Precompiled Header options in the C++ page
set it to the last option "Use precompiled header file *.pch"  and enter in the edit
stdafx.h

in the CPP file of that same DIALOG

u need to include by that order :

1) stdafx.h
2) yourprojectname.h
3) yourdialogname.h

4) any other includes u might need for this dialog

enjoy

p.s.
did u try "Rebuild All" ??? this helps usually...

bye

Important that the first line in each Cpp is:
#include "StdAfx.h"

Use compiler setting C++/Precompiler Header/Use precompiled header file (.pch) through header stdafx.h for full project and C++/Precompiler Header/Create precompiled header file (.pch) through header stdafx.h ONLY for the file stdafx.cpp
