I'm trying to add an icon to my program, so I've added it in my .rc file. When I go to compile, however, it says "compiling resources" then moves on to the linking phase, and complains that "LNK1104: cannot open file "\Debug\resource.rec" anyone know what's causing this?

Check your file names.

The error message LNK1104: cannot open file "\Debug\resource.rec" seems self explanatory.

It should probably be "res" rather than "rec", since the resource compiler by default turns .rc files to .res.

I just got home and tried compiling it again, and it worked just fine. I'm not sure what the problem was, but thanks for the help.
