I got some cpp sample files from tutorials for c++ builder. I opened a new project "console wizard", paste the source code, I compile it => ok, but if i try to run it it gives me a linker error. The funny thing is that if i compile the same code with the compiler in command line it is ok, and it creates the exe file. The error i get is from the line: hBmp=(HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL,MAKEINTRESOURCE(OBM_CHECK),IMAGE_BITMAP,0,0,LR_SHARED); and the linker says: [C++ Error] Unit1.cpp(213): E2451 Undefined symbol 'OBM_CHECK' ....well i did some diging on my one and i found out that OBM_CHECK IS A CONSTANT IN WINUSER.H ... if i include this file as well ... the linker will produce other errors.
My question: If I have a simple cpp source code what should I do in order to compile it from within the IDE ?
