Add the following line at the beginning of your file:
#include "stdafx.h"

Otherwise opene the file's property window and in the "Procompiled header" page choose "without precompiled header" option

For an overview of precompiled headers give a look at:

If you are calling a "c" fucntion from a "cpp" file you need to declare it as extern "C":

example:

in your .c file:

void func(void)
{
...
}

in your .cpp file

extern "C" void func( void );

int main()
{
  ...
  func();
  ...
}

i wrote this
extern "C" void myfuncation( void );
before main() call.
 in my .c file i wrote following code
void myfuncation( void )
{
printf("Hello World");
}
then also i am getting same error
Error 1 error C2732: linkage specification contradicts earlier specification for 'myfuncation' c:\my documents\visual studio 2005\projects\try1\try1\try1.cpp 13

extern "C" void myfuncation( void );
 
I am also including this .c file by #include "try.c"

If you include the .c file in in a .cpp file it will be compiled as cpp code; so you must remove the line
extern "C" void myfuncation( void );
But I don't like this solution.

I'd prefer to compile try.c as a seprate file. So remove #include "try.c" from your .cpp file and add try.c to the project.
