I am trying to create a new thread of execution by calling :

_beginthread( simulateBMP, 0, NULL );

void simulateBMP() will be the function holding the code for this new thread. However, I got a compilation error when I try to compile my program using Visual C++ 6.0.

Even though, I have included the proper library by calling :

#include <process.h>

I still get the following strange error:

D:\MyProjects\MainBlock.cpp(296) : error C2065: '_beginthread' : undeclared identifier

_beginthread is a function defined in <process.h>. Why am I getting this error????

How can I go around it???

Thanks in advance

You need to include multithreaded DLL in your project.  Go to Projects->Settings C++ tab select Code Generation category choose Multithreaded DLL or Debug Multithreaded DLL.


Hope it helps...

If you want to insert this function explicitly
add "libcmt.lib" library to project
settings -> link -> object/library modules
