I have a problem with Microsofts Visual C++ studio. The problem is that in a header file I have included "SDL.h". #include "SDL.h" The file "SDL.h" is both in the project directory and the "Additional include directory" path. I get a compile error like this: "fatal error, Cannot open file 'SDL.h' the directory or file could not be found" [edited by - programering on October 1, 2002 4:40:52 AM]

Umm.. And what''s your problem then?

If you have

  #include "SDL.h"  

in file.cpp, it uses the same directory where file.cpp is to look for sdl.h. If you have

  #include <SDL.h>  

It tries to find the sdl.h from "additional include directories"
