How do I.....

Recommended Posts

Ok, I got some sample code of a complete game. How do I make it exectuable? If that doesn''t make any sense...maybe this will. I have all the files and code needed to carry out the creation of the game....but how? I''m using Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition. I''m looking to accomplish this with C++

Do you have a workspace file included in those files? If so, all you need to do is open the workspace / project and tell VC++ to build. If not, you need to create one manually.

That means, create a new project of whatever type best descibes the program (i.e. Win32 Application or Win32 Console Application) and put in all the source files into the source files folder. (Right click on Source Files folder, insert the files) Then, provided you''re also linking in all the necessary libraries (ddraw.lib, etc), you should be able to build it.

Hope I''m making sense...

There should be a button that says something like make,build, Compile/Link, or something that effect. I''d recommend you learn how to use your compiler and IDE before you try to make a game.

Let's put a few thoughts together, shall we?

This guy has the source code from a game. (He sounds like it's not his).
Then he restates what he just said.
He has MSVS 6.0 ENTERPRISE EDITION.

Now...I'm going with the fact that he has some illegal software, because I don't think anyone that copies code immediately buys MSVS6E. Do you?

Given how much you paid for the Enterprise you should try and get your moneys worth. You''ll find near the back of the getting started manual (the one with installation instructions) a chapter on Enterprise support. There you will find the website addresses and toll free telephone numbers (You''re in the US so you''ve got several to choose from). Using your legimate serial number you can call their no wait telephone support line and have a Microsoft rep. guide you step by step through the process of linking and compiling applications. Trust me, Microsoft is very good to the customers that paid them thousands of dollars for a single licence, for simple issues like this their support is 1000 times better (realtime instructions and paid techs vs. message board and ordinary joes). Since this question is answered far better by the Microsoft Enterprise support your legal Enterprise serial number will unlock I''ll be closing this thread to save bandwidth.
