precompiled headers problem

hi there,

i have a strange problem compiling a very simple project.
details: I have created a new project, console application, not empty project. So i have the files main.cpp, stdafx.cpp , stdafx.h.
Now a simple class is added. Files: entity.h and entity.cpp (through 'Add existing item') Source:

entity.h :

#if !defined(ENTITY_H_)
#define ENTITY_H_

#include "stdafx.h"

using namespace std;

class MM_Entity
{
public:
      MM_Entity( void );
      ~MM_Entity( void );
      bool FromFile( char* filename );

private:
      string m_name;
      string m_pkey;
      vector<string> m_fkeys;
      vector<string> m_attributes;
};

#endif

entity.cpp:

#include "entity.h"

MM_Entity::MM_Entity( void ) : m_fkeys(NULL), m_attributes(NULL)
{

}

MM_Entity::~MM_Entity( void )
{

}

bool MM_Entity::FromFile(char* filename)
{
      return true;
}

Now, when I try to compile I get the error : Unexpected end of file while looking for precompiled header.
Turning off 'Use precompiled header' in project settings ist not the solution. other problems arise then.
What am i missing here?

thanks in advance

Hi g_mcfly,

> #if !defined(ENTITY_H_)
> #define ENTITY_H_

//resst of file

#endif  <-- this is missing ... add #endif as last line of the file

Or, if you don't want to use precompiled headers, select entity.cpp in the workspace area, rightclik, select settings, go to C/C++ tab, 'Precompiled headers' in combo, select then 'not using precompiled headers'.

Do not mind my above comment. :o)

I meant -> rightclick entity.cpp in the solution explorer -> properties -> C/C++ -> precompiled headers -> 'not using...' in first combo
