Linking C files

I tried disabling the precompiled headers as advised but now I get the following fatal error in my C
files:
"MFC requires C++ compilation (use a .cpp suffix)"
Any idea how to solve this?
Thanks!

Hi

I have a problem with linking my user application created using Microsoft Visual C++ version 6.0 to my files written in C.
I have included the "stdafx.h" file in my C source files but I still get the fatal error message saying the precompiled header file "Debug/projectname.pch" is not compatible with this version's precompiler. These error messages occur in my C files.
I tried deleting the pch file and recompiling but it still doesn't work.
Can someone advise on this?
Thanks!

You shouldn't include "stdafx.h" to your .c files ... the error comes from AFX.H
which is included from AFXWIN.H which is include from STDAFX.H ... this AFX.H
declares a lot of common classes (i.e. CString) which of course cannot be compiled
by a C-compiler.

Let's try rename your *.c files to *.cpp.
