I am trying to use a library written in c within a c++ program. I am getting an error:
c:\mad_test\msvc++\gui\player.c(2021) : fatal error C1010: unexpected end of file while looking for precompiled header directive

I know that the error is being caused because it is a c file in a cpp program, but what I need to know is how do I make it work.

Thanks in advance,
John

Try adding the following to the top of the *.c file:

#include "stdafx.h"

The error  you posted is not related to the file been a *.c file.
The error has to do with your project precompile header options.

I get this error when I add #include "stdafx.h" to the top of the .c file:

c:\mad_test\msvc++\gui\player.c(21) : fatal error C1853: 'Debug/GUI.pch' is not a precompiled header file created with this compiler
Error executing cl.exe.

Hmm, the emergency method: Go to the properties of the C file (in the file view, select it and right-click), choose the C++ tab, pick "Precompiled Headers" in the ComboBox and select "No precompiled headers"....
