visual studio windows 7 issue

Recommended Posts

I am using windows 7 64 bit and I am having serious issues with studio 2005 and include and lib directories. It appears anything I enter in the option/Project directories settings manually doesn't work. It can't find include files and libs in those directories and when I try using the right click option to go the header file at the #include <> line the directories I entered are not in the list of directories. They are there when I check the settings but its like the lines I entered don't exist to studio. Is anyone else having this issue and found an answer?

I haven't gotten visual studio 2005 to play nice with Windows 7 either. I have had success getting into to run in XP mode though. I'd suggest trying that ,assuming you have 7 pro or ultimate.

Odd, I've got VS2005 express + pro and VS2008 express + pro working on both 32 and 64 bit versions of windows 7 no problem, and have done since the first windows 7 beta.

Any error messages while installing etc?

I don't know about 2005, but I've been running Visual Studio 2008 for a few months on Windows 7 64-bit without problems. I don't see how this in particular could be an issue, either. Make sure in your project's property pages you don't have the "$(NOINHERIT)" directive in the Additional Include Directories setting...

I am not sure why I will probably just move my 3rd party stuff to a preoject common directory and use the project include and lib settings instead. In fact its probably better anyway then I don't have this issue with any changes in the future.
