Hello,

I have an application with the include files and a win.lib file in two separate folders - both were provided. I need to use another header file and I put it in the include folder and #include it in my application but it doesn't work - any ideas? Thanks!

You need to set up the INCLUDE path to point to the directory where the .h file resides. What compiler are you using?

I am using visual studio .NET - I typed #include "myfile.h" at the top of the application file but it doesn't work.

That's what I meant - go to your project settings and go to the "Preprocessor" section on the C++ tab. There's a text field labeled "Additional include directoris" where you can enter the location of your .h file.
