  1. VC++ cannot locate d3dx9tex.h

    I tried moving the files to the bottom of the list in the vc++directory option, and now I'm getting this error: inking... LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file ',.obj' Build log was saved at "file://d:\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\beginning directx9\chapter3\01 Bitmap background\background bitmap\background bitmap\Debug\BuildLog.htm" background bitmap - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s) ========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
  2. I've been trying to use d3dx9tex.h in my program, but the compiler says that there is no such file. d3d9.h, which is in the same folder, works fine. I linked both .lib files. I then read an old thread that said to make sure that the include/lib folders were in the vc++ global options.they are. i'm now getting this error: ------ Build started: Project: test, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------ Compiling... winmain.cpp c:\program files\microsoft sdks\windows\v6.0a\include\winnt.h(236) : error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'PVOID64' c:\program files\microsoft sdks\windows\v6.0a\include\winnt.h(236) : error C4430: missing type specifier - int assumed.

Any advice would be welcome.

    Thanks mate. Now I can actually get on with some coding :)
  4. visual studio 2008 win32 problem

    I've been using dev c++ while learning c++ for the past two years. I want to learn to use the win32 api which works fine with devc++. However, as I will eventually want to use directx, I downloaded visual studio 2008 express. The code that works in devc++ does not work in vs. I'm sure that its just a setup issue, but with the mass of info regarding vs 2008 I can't seem to figure out whats going on. As I say, I'm new to windows programming and i'm finding he learning curve pretty steep. This is the basic code i'm trying to compile: #include <windows.h> HINSTANCE hInst; HWND wndHandle; bool initWindow(HINSTANCE hInstance); LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND, UINT, WPARAM, LPARAM); int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPTSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow) { if (!initWindow(hInstance)) return false; // Main message loop: MSG msg; ZeroMemory( &msg, sizeof(msg) ); while( msg.message!=WM_QUIT ) { if( PeekMessage( &msg, NULL, 0U, 0U, PM_REMOVE ) ) { TranslateMessage( &msg ); DispatchMessage( &msg ); } } return (int) msg.wParam; } bool initWindow(HINSTANCE hInstance) { WNDCLASSEX wcex; wcex.cbSize = sizeof(WNDCLASSEX); wcex.style = CS_HREDRAW | CS_VREDRAW; wcex.lpfnWndProc = (WNDPROC)WndProc; wcex.cbClsExtra = 0; wcex.cbWndExtra = 0; wcex.hInstance = hInstance; wcex.hIcon = 0; wcex.hCursor = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW); wcex.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)(COLOR_WINDOW+1); wcex.lpszMenuName = NULL; wcex.lpszClassName = "DirectXExample"; wcex.hIconSm = 0; RegisterClassEx(&wcex); wndHandle = CreateWindow("DirectXExample", "DirectXExample", WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, CW_USEDEFAULT, CW_USEDEFAULT, 640, 480, NULL, NULL, hInstance, NULL); if (!wndHandle) return false; ShowWindow(wndHandle, SW_SHOW); UpdateWindow(wndHandle); return true; } LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hWnd, UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam) { switch (message) { case WM_DESTROY: PostQuitMessage(0); break; } return DefWindowProc(hWnd, message, wParam, lParam); } and this is the error i'm getting: Compiling... winmain.cpp d:\my documents\visual studio 2008\projects\project 1\project 1\winmain.cpp(19) : error C2731: 'WinMain' : function cannot be overloaded d:\my documents\visual studio 2008\projects\project 1\project 1\winmain.cpp(16) : see declaration of 'WinMain' d:\my documents\visual studio 2008\projects\project 1\project 1\winmain.cpp(52) : error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'const char [15]' to 'LPCWSTR' Types pointed to are unrelated; conversion requires reinterpret_cast, C-style cast or function-style cast d:\my documents\visual studio 2008\projects\project 1\project 1\winmain.cpp(67) : error C2664: 'CreateWindowExW' : cannot convert parameter 2 from 'const char [15]' to 'LPCWSTR' Types pointed to are unrelated; conversion requires reinterpret_cast, C-style cast or function-style cast Build log was saved at "file://d:\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\project 1\project 1\Debug\BuildLog.htm" project 1 - 3 error(s), 0 warning(s) ========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ========== If there is something simple that I'm missing, please enlighten me. If not, is there a book or web resourse that will help. Thanks
