problems building my VS2008 project...?

I am having problems with building projects from Visual Studio 2008.

Specifically the error I receive is the same each time. I have checked online for any help on this but wasn't able to find anything. I also found out that this error is about the MFC support for ribbons and control bars.

The error I get is this:

Error 1 fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'afxcontrolbars.h': No such file or directory

I have located this error in the stdafx.h file under the header files folder of my project.

Just for reference purposes I am running:
Win7 64bit
Visual Studio 2008 Professional

Some help or feedback would be appreciated

Thanks!

I almost certainly can't help with this but at very least you'll have to post some code and indicate the line on which it is erroring.

maybe web designer forum would be of use?

this is not a web related query. It is network programming.

Here is the code:


// stdafx.h : include file for standard system include files,
// or project specific include files that are used frequently,
// but are changed infrequently

#pragma once

#ifndef _SECURE_ATL
#define _SECURE_ATL 1
#endif

#ifndef VC_EXTRALEAN
#define VC_EXTRALEAN // Exclude rarely-used stuff from Windows headers
#endif

#include "targetver.h"

#define _ATL_CSTRING_EXPLICIT_CONSTRUCTORS // some CString constructors will be explicit

// turns off MFC's hiding of some common and often safely ignored warning messages
#define _AFX_ALL_WARNINGS

#include <afxwin.h> // MFC core and standard components
#include <afxext.h> // MFC extensions


#include <afxdisp.h> // MFC Automation classes



#ifndef _AFX_NO_OLE_SUPPORT
#include <afxdtctl.h> // MFC support for Internet Explorer 4 Common Controls
#endif
#ifndef _AFX_NO_AFXCMN_SUPPORT
#include <afxcmn.h> // MFC support for Windows Common Controls
#endif // _AFX_NO_AFXCMN_SUPPORT

#include <afxcontrolbars.h> // MFC support for ribbons and control bars


#include <afxsock.h> // MFC socket extensions







#ifdef _UNICODE
#if defined _M_IX86
#pragma comment(linker,"/manifestdependency:\"type='win32' name='Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls' version='6.0.0.0' processorArchitecture='x86' publicKeyToken='6595b64144ccf1df' language='*'\"")
#elif defined _M_IA64

#elif defined _M_X64
#pragma comment(linker,"/manifestdependency:\"type='win32' name='Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls' version='6.0.0.0' processorArchitecture='amd64' publicKeyToken='6595b64144ccf1df' language='*'\"")

#endif
#endif


im afraid this is only part of the code as there are various other files. However, this is the code where the error originates.

then what about networking forum?

I have no knowledge if this programming language!

Try deleting this line


// stdafx.h : include file for standard system include files,

and replace with

#include <stdafx.h>

  arminmckidd 20:14 20 Feb 2010

i did exactly what you suggested 'VoG' but i still got an error:

Error 1 fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'stdafx.h': No such file or directory

You'll need to check in Project > Properties (or whatever, sorry but I am totally unfamiliar with this language) that that file or its parent is referenced. If you find a Missing just untick it.

Hope this helps - based on nothing but experience in other languages.

Have you downloaded the MFC Feature Pack?
See:
click here

There are several videos on using ribbons.
click here

And scroll down to Feature Pack.

Does the file AssemblyInfo.cpp start with #include "stdafx.h"

Have you got a stdafx.cpp file which also starts with #include "stdafx.h"

  onionskin 23:32 20 Feb 2010

And does your main project file (appname.cpp) also start with #include "stdafx.h"
