Using the Class Wizard I try and create a new class. After filling in the name and base class I get the following error:

The files (xxx.h, xxx.cpp) for the new class "MyClass" contain remnant of that class.

Any idea why I am getting this error?

Thanks

Delete the .clw file and try again.
VC 'thinks' the class is already existing, probably from some error earlier.
