Hi I have some header files in a subdirectory and I want to include them in my main header. I don't want to add the folder to the directories link in the project I just want to do something like this #include "/folder/class.h" but for some reason its not finding it.

If you have this structure

- Some Main Folder
- Folder 1
- File1.h
- Folder 2
- File2.h
- Project Folder
- File.cpp


You would have to do:


#include "../folder 1/file1.h"


If you have this structure

- Project Folder
- File.cpp
- Folder 1
- File1.h
- Folder 2
- File2.h


You would have to do:


#include "folder 1/file1.h"


As HarryW has said.

probably because you tried his first method in a directory structure resembling the second method.
