Hi. I'm trying to learn 3D programming with this book that was released in circa 2002, compiling any of the code doesn't work in a modern compiler (Say... Visual Studio 2005 or 2008). And I can't find VS2003 anywhere? Microsoft doesn't seem to have it anymore, and I don't want to turn to pirate sites out of principle. Also I'm working with .dsw files, does anyone know if there are any plugins for any other compilers than the Microsoft ones that can handle that? Also I'm self learned so don't bash me on not knowing the terminology, please. :P Thanks in advance! P.S. If it helps, it's the 3D Game Engine Programming book by Stefan Zerbst, if anyone has worked with it before. Edit: OKAY, thanks a lot! I solved the problem. As usual it was just me being a total noob! :) Turns out I'm using the wrong version of VC++ 2k8, trying to find the MFC package now. [Edited by - Lemmi on March 6, 2010 12:32:56 PM]

If you use the VS2005 or VS2008 version you can just convert the older .dsw files to the newer format and most of the code should just work if you have the correct libraries

What edition of VS 2008 are you running?

afxres.h is part of MFC, which does not come with the Express editions.

Update: It looks like everything else compiled, which indicates your code does not need MFC. You can try editing the dlgChangeDevice.rc and replacing afxres.h with windows.h. People on this thread were successful with that approach (ignore the post marked as "answer" since it probably no longer works).
