Fatal error C1189

Hi, I have an annoying error, a simple one I think, but I can't find it on EE. I just can't compile and it says this:

------ Build started: Project: Calc_Marco, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
Compiling...
CCalcDlg.cpp
c:\program files\microsoft visual studio 8\vc\atlmfc\include\afx.h(24) : fatal error C1189: #error :  Building MFC application with /MD[d] (CRT dll version) requires MFC shared dll version. Please #define _AFXDLL or do not use /MD[d]

What does that means?

Thanks,

Try doing a build using the shared MFC libraries.  (I guess you have the option to use static libraries selected).

Project - properties.
On properties window
Configuration Properties - General:  Use of MFC  <---- here you should have 'use MFC in a shared dll'
