A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games.

None of these errors seem to be related to working with the serial port. Your precompiled headers seem to be messed up. Either fix stdafx.h or remove the include and switch them off in the compile settings. You also seem to be trying to link MFC statically while using the dynamic runtime. Do you actually need MFC at all in the first place?

[code]#include "stdafx.h"[/code] needs to be the first line in any source file if you are using a precompiled header. Anything before that is ignored. Move the two defines down below #include "stdafx.h" or put them in the stdafx.h file instead. Edited by turch

when using pre-compiled headers, #include "stdafx.h" should always be the first line.
anythig before that is ignored
