Do you have set the '/clr' compiler options in your project settings?

I don't have a VS.NET here right now, but there should be a text field at the bottom when you choose the 'C++' tab in your project settings. Add it there.

That could have plenty of reasons - check out http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;814472 ("PRB: Linker Warnings When You Build Managed Extensions for C++ DLL Projects") and the linker warning reference page: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vccore/html/vctbsLinkerToolsWarningLNK4210.asp ("Linker Tools Warning LNK4210")

Also, go into the Configuration Properties/Genreal page of the project properties and set "Use managed Extensions" to Yes.  This will add /clr and change a few other settings required for managed C++.

I was simply wanting to use StreamReader in an MFC DLL
the "use managed extensions" only works with /NOENTRY set and this results in the problems shown erlier
I can always go bact to using scanf and fgets to read my file

Any other Ideas?

>>  I was simply wanting to use StreamReader in an MFC DLL
If all you want to do is use one slick feature of .NET class library in an otherwise regular C++ dll, it's generally a good idea to resist the temptation.  Besides being a half-breed executable, it causes a host of difficulties with compilation and linking (as you've experienced).  You should either plan to port the whole app to managed C++ or just leave it as wholly unmanaged code.  There is rarely a good reason to mix it up.

Also, here's an article explaining the linker warning and what you can do about it:
