stdafx.h(15) Error

Hello,
I received this error message,
Compiling...
StdAfx.cpp
c:\documents and settings\van\my documents\visual studio 2005\anvil\api\anvilextexample\stdafx.h(15) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'afxwin.h': No such file or directory


I tried adding reference but error message still remain. Could someone give me a tip to solve this problem? please keep the answer simple (Visual Studio for Dummies) cause i'm a novice using MSVisualStudio C++ 2005 Express

thanks

Hi,
   This means that the 'afxwin.h' file is not present in the VC++ installed directory (It's a part of the installation).
Since you are using Express edition, it doesn't support MFC and 'afxwin.h' contains the MFC core and standard components (i.e afxwin.h will be available only if MFC is present). So you have to go for VC++ professional edition or some other edition of VC++.

For further information have a look at the following link

Visual C++ Express does not support developing for MFC and/or ATL for free. So this may explain why you can't find afxwin.h
So you may try installing platform SDK from this link : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=D8EECD75-1FC4-49E5-BC66-9DA2B03D9B92&displaylang=en
