what does this mean ObjMgr.h:34: error: initializer specified for non-virtual method `Obj* Obj::Create()'' this is my class: class Obj { public: Obj* Create() = 0; protected: }; i should be able to use Obj as an interface to return a pointer of type Obj? or is that my problem? i cant return a pointer because its abstract class?

you can't say = 0 after a function in a definiton unless it's a virtual function (the = 0 means "pure virtual function" which by definition must be virtual...):

this will work:

class Obj
{
public:
virtual Obj* Create() = 0;

protected:

};


though normally you don't call a create method unless it's a singleton class. if it's not a singleton class just use a constructor:


class Obj
{
public:
Obj();

protected:

};
