When i download these source codes , the demo source is ok .
But my question is that when i download that source code ( "keyhook.cpp && "keyhook.h") and compile it using MFC(DLL) .It didn't work and there is an error

"fatal error C1010: unexpected end of file while looking for precompiled header directive"

Although i have included the library "stdafx.h" in my "keyhook.cpp"

Can anyone will me an help?
Thank you very much

You need to put

#include "StdAfx.h"

as the 1st line of your .cpp file - VC++ will create it's precompiled headers through that file and therefore needs that directive there.

Did you look at his demo project?  The source files are not for MFC (keyhook.cpp includes windows.h). The demo project (which does not use keyhook.cpp) is an MFC project and compiles and runs just fine (at least for me).

Hi dtuananh,
You can setup your file so it doesn't need precompile headers.
You can do this by right clicking the file on your FileView workspace, and then click settings.
Then click the C++ tab, and change category to Precompiled Headers.
Then just select "Not Using Precompiled Headers".

This is a good option to use, if you want to keep the file as-is.
