CString in WinCE

I have just created a basic app using the app wizard in EVC++ 4.0. I am trying to instantiate a CString based class in that app. When I do that the ": public CString" in the class declaration causes a compile error "error C2504: 'CString' : base class undefined". I have turned on precompiled headers for the class and am using stdafx.h. What could be the problem?

Hi dbthompson,

is it an MFC app? Do you include <afxwin.h> in 'stdafx.h'?

It is an MFC app. But your tip helped me. It did not occur to me that afxwin.h would not automatically be included in stdafx.h. That fixed it. Thanks!
