I have code which contains ESQL/C which is pre-processed by the Embedded SQL precompiler nsqlprep. This works fine when used with Visual Studio 6 but does not work when used with Visual Studio 2005.

As a simple test case I have a file called helloworld.sqc which contains the following text:

#include      <stdio.h>
int main()
{
      printf("hello world\n");
      return 0;
}

and I type

nsqlprep helloworld

from within a Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt (Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 -> Visual Studio Tools), and I get

Microsoft (R) Embedded SQL for C Pre-Compiler. Version 6.50.04.
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corp 1993-1996. All rights reserved.

Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 14.00.50727.42 for 80x86
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

helloworld.sqc
Warning: helloworld.sqc, line 3235: syntax error.
{
Warning: helloworld.sqc, line 3238: syntax error.
(
Warning: helloworld.sqc, line 3262: syntax error.
(
Warning: helloworld.sqc, line 5: syntax error.
{


However, it runs and creates helloworld.c.

If I then type

cl helloworld.c

upon the helloworld.c which is produced by nsqlprep, I get

Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 14.00.50727.42 for 80x86
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

helloworld.c
D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\INCLUDE\crtdefs.h(1717) : error C2
011: 'localeinfo_struct' : 'struct' type redefinition
        D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\INCLUDE\crtdefs.h(1717) :
see declaration of 'localeinfo_struct'
D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\INCLUDE\crtdefs.h(1723) : error C2
011: 'tagLC_ID' : 'struct' type redefinition
        D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\INCLUDE\crtdefs.h(1723) :
see declaration of 'tagLC_ID'
D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\INCLUDE\crtdefs.h(1732) : error C2
011: 'threadlocaleinfostruct' : 'struct' type redefinition
        D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\INCLUDE\crtdefs.h(1732) :
see declaration of 'threadlocaleinfostruct'


If we repeat this exercise where we have

INCLUDE=D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Include;
LIB=D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Lib

i.e. the Visual Studio 6 include files and libraries, then everything works OK.

push/pop pragmas are like open/close braces
for each push pragma there has to be one pop pragma
