Seems that you are inside a static method and lFrame1 is not a static member. Make it static. Or create an instance of the class and use a member-access operator.

Is lFrame1 a static variable?
If not, then that is your problem.  To access a non-static member variable, you must instantiate a class first.

In other words:
CAVIThread ct;
ct.lFrame1 = whatever;

If you want to use the member variable as in CAVIThread::lFrame1, then you need to make that variable static.

class CAVIThread
{
  static int lFrame1;
  //...
};

got error C2512: CAVIThread ct;
LONG lFrame;

lFrame = ct.lFrame1;
if (m_pGPSArray->AddGPSArray(sFileName, lFrame) > 1)

error C2512: 'CAVIThread' : no appropriate default constructor available

I think thare is a problem connected with that fact, that i've got  lFrame1 in AVIViewer.cpp, and CAVIThread::lFrame1 in MainFrm.cpp...

in your AVIThread.h

ok. you need to define it
in AVIThread.cpp, after include lines

LONG CAVIThread::lFrame1 = 0;

Put this line before any class method.

Will you kindly be more specific on your last advice? Unfortunately, i can't give it a try - some things are not understood...

A static member variable must be declared. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/vccelng/htm/class_27.asp for more info
