While trying to convert an eVC++ project to VS2005, when I do a build I get the following error:

error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'm_dateMatch'
error C4430: missing type specifier - int assumed. Note: C++ does not support default-int      
      

The line of code is:
CMonthCalCtrl      m_dateMatch;

Check to see if afxdtctl.h is in your stdafx.h
#ifndef _AFX_NO_OLE_SUPPORT
#include <afxdtctl.h>		// MFC support for Internet Explorer 4 Common Controls
#endif

Open in new window

It is in as follows:

#if defined(_AFXDLL)
#include <afxdtctl.h>            // MFC support for Internet Explorer 4 Common Controls
#endif

Thanks

>>>> CMonthCalCtrl      m_dateMatch;

There are two common reasons for that error:

1. The issue is not in that line but in the line before where for example you forgot the semicolon ; or have a colon : instead.

2. You forgot to include the header for the CMonthCalCtrl

The second is that mrjoltcola assumed.

If you include a new headerfile in one of your headers you might need to make a 'Rebuild all' after in case your project uses 'Precompiled Headers' (PCH).  AFAIK all VC versions have problems to regocnize reliably changes where a new PCH was needed to be built.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

>>>> #if defined(_AFXDLL)
That is only set in a dll project using MFC

Check that _AFXDLL is defined, or change to use the #ifdef I provided, it is possible the #if defined(_AFXDLL) is from older projects. I don't have any evc4 projects to refer to anymore so I cannot confirm.

Did you create a new project from scratch or convert the old one?

I converted from an old project.

I could not find _AFXDLL  defined anywhere.  I used the code you provided and it has now got past this error.

Thanks all
