Hi, I've got the MS Visual C++ 2005 Express Beta 2 downloaded and installed. I've got the platform SDK installed, but when I follow MS's instructions about setting it all up, I get to the point of running the sample Win32 program to check it's all working (the final step). Thing is, it isn't. I get the following errors:
1>Command line warning D4002 : ignoring unknown option '/errorReport:prompt'
1>Command line warning D4024 : unrecognized source file type ' &#9632;/', object file assumed
1>LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file " &#9632;/.obj"


The &9632; appears as a black square in the VC++ output window - it just gets parsed here for some reason. Here's my VCProjectEngine.Dll.Express XML config file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<VCPlatformConfigurationFile
Version="8.00"
>
<Platform
Name="VCProjectEngine.dll"
Identifier="Win32"
>
<Directories
Include="$(VCInstallDir)include;$(VCInstallDir)PlatformSDK\include;$(FrameworkSDKDir)include;$"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\include";"
Library="$(VCInstallDir)lib;$(VCInstallDir)PlatformSDK\lib;$(FrameworkSDKDir)lib;$(VSInstallDir);$(VSInstallDir)lib;$"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\lib";"
Path="$(VCInstallDir)bin;$(VCInstallDir)PlatformSDK\bin;$(VSInstallDir)Common7\Tools\bin;$(VSInstallDir)Common7\tools;$(VSInstallDir)Common7\ide;$(ProgramFiles)\HTML Help Workshop;$(FrameworkSDKDir)bin;$(FrameworkDir)$(FrameworkVersion);$(VSInstallDir);$(PATH);$"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\Bin";"
Reference="$(FrameworkDir)$(FrameworkVersion)"
Source="$(VCInstallDir)crt\src" /> </Platform> </VCPlatformConfigurationFile>  I suspect the problem is in there, but I'm not too sure. Thanks in advance for your help, my ultimate aim is to get SDL/Direct X working with it (I'll probably post here again asking for help with that :D). Thanks, ukdeveloper. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites Advertisement UPDATE: I've reinstalled this and the Platform SDK, and now I get the same error when compiling Hello World as a Win32 Console project. What is happening??! #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites Quote: $"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\Bin";
