Whenever I delete a source file that I don''t want anymore my linker always gets an error stating that it can no longer find that file. The thing is, I don''t want it to find that file, I want it to link just the things that are still present. Does anyone know how to fix this problem, any advice is appreciated. --BioX

I just go into the directory. I don''t know how to delete it from the project


go to the File View window (the one on the left where all the files /resources / classes show up, switch to file view if you can''t see the files). now seleect the file and press the allmighty Delete button on your keyboard

It won''t let me delete this one file, "basetsd.h" from the fileview. And what if I already deleted a file in the wrong manner, is there a way to still fix the problem?

that''s an external dependency so you can''t delete it from the project. That file shouldn''t be in your project directory though...
