C++ conversion errors

I'm new to .NET and appreciate any help.

I'm converting a VS 6.0 C++ project to 7.0 and I'm getting a bunch of errors that I don't understand.

1) how do you setup the search paths for lib, include, bin etc as y ou did in 6.0. The program is having problems finding files like ..\src\occimpl.h

2) I'm getting some strangeness like Error C2143 syntax error : missing ')' before "*" in many of .NET's include files for example VC7\atlmfc\include\afxole.h line 1398  ... also on the same line error C2059: syntax error : ')'

I know I must be doing something wrong here but I can find any references that help.

thanks

Open the 'Solution Explorer' (CTRL + ALT + 'L')

You should see something like:

***********************************************************

= Solution 'temp2' (1 project)
|
+- = Project1

... etc (the rest of the files/projects)

***********************************************************


Right click on the name of the project (not the solution, the project, in this case it s 'Project1'), then on properties and you should see something more familiar ;).

I have seen the extra directories to search, but aren't system folders search automatically? Why aren't the atlmfc folders being searched. Is there some setting ?  Seems like we're missing something

I called Microsoft on this and the correct way to do this is to turn on ATL project in properties and the include path had to be <..\src\mfc\occimpl.h>
