heey all, i've tried to embed lua into C++. i'm using this code:
extern "C" {   
#include "lua.h"   
#include "lualib.h"   
#include "lauxlib.h"   
#include <stdio.h>
int main()   
	int s=0;   
	lua_State *L = lua_open();   

	//run a Lua scrip here   
	luaL_dofile(L, "lua/startup.lua");   

	printf("\nI am done with Lua in C++.\n");   



but when i run it i get this error:
PANIC: unprotected error in call to Lua API (no calling environment)
any idea's how to solve this error? i'm using: Visual C++ 2008 lua 5.1.4 i'm linking to: lua5.1.lib
