Hi, After few weeks of development, I want to migrate with my project to MSVC2005E. Project contains about 50 header files, in different directories. And... while compiling, it show's up something like "unable to find file "something.h" " which is simply in some subdirectories. How to force the compiler to look for them in special places? Sorry for total noob question, but as funny I've found it, I didn't slove it... I found some reference paths for linker, but not for compiler :). Idea of correcting #incudes in every single file sounds stupid to me...

You can add them there (E.g. I have "$(SolutionDir)/Engine";"$(SolutionDir)/Game") and that will set them up for your current project only, or you can add them to Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> VC++ Directories, and select "Include files" from the droplist in the top right. That'll add those directories for every project you open with that IDE.
